Yuchengco Center represents Asia in think-tank conference

President of the Yuchengco Center for East Asia and professor of International Relations Dr. Wilfrido Villacorta represented Asia in the conference of think-tanks on “Globalization and Political Consulting” held in Berlin, Germany on December 9-11.

Ten countries, namely the United States, Russia, Germany, Argentina, South Africa, France, United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium, and the Philippines, presented papers. The Konrad Adenauer Foundation sponsored the conference.

The Yuchengco Center for East Asia, a research center based in DLSU-M, has begun to expand its programs to reach out to the public sector in the Philippines and abroad. It has provided consulting services to Indonesian organizations on constitutional reform and has extended training to the state university and government ministries of Laos.

Last month, the Center sponsored a working conference on information technology for local governments. Its fellows have conducted courses in the Foreign Service Institute and provided inputs to projects of government agencies.

The Center, which is part of the Philippine APEC Study Center Network and the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific, will engage in more public service activities in cooperation with the La Salle Institute of Governance.
