The world is entering a new phase of globalization that is full of complex and interrelated challenges which, if not managed well, can result in the slowdown of the global economy.
One of the challenges that go along with the New Globalization is the uncertainty from global trade restructuring. This topic will be discussed in one of the parallel sessions of the Annual Public Conference Policy (APPC), which will be conducted on September 19, 2019, at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. The APPC is organized by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) as the main activity of the Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) celebration held annually. The theme of both DPRM and APPC this year is “Navigating the New Globalization: Local Actions for Global Challenges” or in Filipino, “Paglalayag sa Bagong Globalisasyon: Lokal naPagkilos sa mga Pandaigdigang Hamon”.
