Philippine Signing Minister for BIMP-EAGA Conference (BEC) and Mindanao Development Authority Chairman Luwalhati Antonino recognized the potentials of strategic and relevant studies in narrowing the development gaps across and within the sub-region.

“It’s assuring to know that we have this pool of experts who may undertake social and scientific researches that will help our policy and decision makers craft the right policies that will help us fortify BIMP-EAGA’s four strategic pillars of development,” Antonino said.

BIMP-EAGA is a sub-regional economic cooperation designed to spur economic development in lagging sub-economies. Its four strategic pillars are connectivity, food basket, environment and tourism.

Antonino added that strengthening the research and development in BIMP-EAGA is a necessary preparation for the Asean integration by 2015, with the sub-region poised to become the food basket and agribusiness hub of Asean.

“We need to sustain this initiative to provide knowledge base in harnessing our market intelligence, innovating advancements, and harmonizing key policies with the end goal of strengthening BIMP-EAGA’s overall competitiveness,” said Antonino.

For his part, former President Fidel Ramos, founder of BIMP-EAGA also said that the academe plays a crucial role in the institutional relationships within the sub-region.

“The hope of BIMP-EAGA lies on the younger generation. True connectivity does not merely rely on physical connectivity, but also through the strengthened connection of its people,” Ramos said.

Now on its second year, BEC gathered papers and case studies on tourism, business entrepreneurship, information system, marketing, economics, law, culture, health and agriculture. Studies submitted are regional in nature, but also bears a BIMP-EAGA perspective.

To further sustain the initiative and strengthen academic linkages, the BIMP-EAGA ministers are also exploring the possibility of a student exchange program among the universities of EAGA member countries.
