Are Philippine academic institutions ready for ASEAN integration? (Part 2)


University of the Philippines Vice-President for Public Affairs Dr. Prospero De Vera continues to tackle the issue of the preparedness of the country’s academic institutions for the ASEAN integration next year.

De Vera said the ASEAN integration in 2015 should not be feared by Philippine academic institutions.  He also discussed the present advantages that present academic institutions have and the rethinking that has to be done to make Philippine higher educational institutions more competitive in the region and the rest of the world.

The interview was aired during the ASEAN in Focus episode of NET 25 on Oct. 30, 2014.
