An Exclusive Invitation to the
ATENEO DE MANILA UNIVERSITY EAGLEWATCH
Economic and Political Briefing

Building Strengths in Institutions and the Economy:
THE CHALLENGE OF 2010 AND BEYOND

Wednesday, 20 February 2008, 8:30-11:30 am
Veritas Hall, 4th Floor Ateneo Professional Schools, Rockwell


This early, major political groups are busy preparing for the  
Presidential elections in 2010.  Talks are abuzz with rumors on the  
official bets of dominant opposition parties while some Malacañang  
allies have expressed desire to run for the highest office in the land.

Too early, some say. For us in Ateneo, the early election fever will  
only be productive if the more crucial tasks that will maximize its  
results are attended to.  For instance, how will the new leadership in  
Comelec pursue electoral reforms and a modernized, clean and honest  
elections?  How can the economic gains of a stronger agricultural  
sector and steadily growing investments be sustained?  What further  
institutional strengthening before and beyond the elections should be  
undertaken to address the more important developmental issues of  
poverty, hunger and restlessness?

The Eagle Watch briefing this February will provide a venue for  
addressing these questions. Our economic, political experts will  
engage an audience composed of businessmen, economists, media and  
other prominent representatives of academe, government and  
non-government sectors into a lively discussion to be able to  
understand the persistent issues, decide more intelligently for their  
respective organizations, and more importantly, get more involved  in  
efforts to uplift the country?s welfare.

Join us.

ABOUT EAGLEWATCH

The Economics Department through its research group, the Ateneo Center  
for Economic Research and Development (ACERD), has been conducting  
quarterly macroeconomic briefings since early 2002.  These briefings  
were mainly economic in nature -- basically an assessment of the  
performance of the economy (GNP, GDP, other economic indicators, based  
on latest results) -- and a forecast /economic outlook for the  
medium-term based on the  Ateneo Macroeconomic Forecasting Model  
(AMFM) which ACERD had developed. The AMFM is the only operational  
full macroeconomic model of the Philippine economy outside of the  
NEDA-PIDS model being used by the government.

Beginning in September 2003, the Ateneo Economics Department and ACERD  
partnered with the Ateneo Center for Social Planning and Public  
Affairs (ACSPPA), the Ateneo Political Science Department, and the  
Ateneo School of Government and expanded the briefing to include an  
assessment of the country's political situation. This is in  
recognition of the fact that a sound economic analysis can only be  
made more complete if seen in the light of the political events  
happening in the country.

Since then, the briefing has been called Eagle Watch and has provided  
sound economic and political analysis to businessmen, economists,  
media and other prominent representatives of academe, government and  
non-government sectors.
