RE : KAPIHAN NG BAYAN SA U.P. IN MARCH --
“ASEAN INTEGRATION: BOON OR BANE?”

We are pleased to invite you to this month’s session of Kapihan ng Bayan sa U.P., as entitled above, which will attempt to peer into the hazy prospects of the ASEAN Integration at the Consunji Room of Ang Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman, Quezon City, on 24 March 2015, Tuesday, 3:00-5:00 PM.

We will have two resource speakers in the persons of Dr. Julio S. Amador III, Deputy-Director General of the Foreign Service Institute (FSI), and Dr. Federico M. Macaranas of the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), who will share their thoughts on how the country should prepare for this event which will have profound and far-reaching effects on the lives of all Filipinos when it goes into effect by the end of this year. In the open forum, we anticipate a discussion on the ways and means through which our country can remain competitive with other ASEAN nations.

Kapihan ng Bayan sa U.P., as most of us already know, is a public service project of the UPAA which aims to serve as a regular forum for intelligent and constructive discussion of issues relevant to our development as a nation.

We shall be honored with your participation. Thank you, and best regards.

PONCIANO E. RIVERA, JR.
