The Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIRe) is gaining ground in different parts of the world. It is time for the Philippines to embrace it. To harness the opportunities and mitigate the risks emerging from the FIRe, cross-sectoral collaboration and a whole-of-government approach, guided by policy research and inputs from stakeholders, are what we need to CREATE OUR FUTURE NOW.
The DPRM aims to promote nationwide awareness on the importance of policy research in the formulation of policies, plans, and programs. It also aims to cultivate a strong culture of research and research use among decisionmakers and raise the public's literacy on socioeconomic issues.
