DAGUPAN CITY, May 25 (PIA) — The United Nations Industrial Development Organization–Arab Regional Center for Entrepreneurship and Investment Training (UNIDO-ARCEIT) is set to stage a multi-sectoral forum on entrepreneurship and investment promotion on Monday, May 28 at the University of Luzon (UL) multi-purpose hall, this city.
The forum, in collaboration with the said university, will introduce the Arab Model for Enterprise Development and Investment Promotion (EDIP) that was conceptualized in Bahrain and successfully shared to 18 countries around the world.
Dr. Carmelo John Vidal, UL Director for Integrated Extension Services, said the forum aims to explore the possibility of establishing entrepreneurship development center in the country that will implement the EDIP Program and other economic-empowerment related initiatives.
The forum was made possible through the UL Graduate School’s Institute of Local Governance and Community Development (ULGS-ILGCD); UL Center for Integrated Extension Services (UL-CIES;) and UL Students in Free Enterprise (UL-SIFE).
It can be remembered that the UL-SIFE team represented the Philippines in the international SIFE contest held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last year. The group won the opening round competition and advanced to the semi-final round. (JCR/VHS-PIA 1 Pangasinan)
