What is to be done?

In light of the very serious crisis that our country is currently facing, the question of reforming not only policies but institutions as well has become imperative. Even as this political crisis has yet to be resolved, we should be thinking of short-term and strategic measures that will lay the foundation for stronger and more robust institutions that will address the chronic political and economic crises that shake Philippine society.

To address these problems, Action for Economic Reforms (AER) and Business World (BW) co-sponsored a forum entitled, “What is to be done?” last July 22, 2005, 8:30 a.m. at the Columbus Room, 42nd Floor, Discovery Suites, ADB Avenue, Pasig City.
