Two Philippine professors won the top prize in the Awards and Medals Competition of the Global Development Network (GDN) held in Bogota, Spain.

Alvin P. Ang and Jeremaiah M. Opiniano, both professors of the University of Sto.Tomas (teaching economics and journalism respectively) won from over 100 other countries’ research proposals.

   

Congratulations Sir Jere (and colleague)! Your efforts finally paid off.

During our last vacation, I learned that  Sir Jere has been volunteering for the OFW Journalism Consortium. The consortium aims to deliver  reportage about Filipinos’ international migration and other related issues. Reading about, I learned that he has been writing about remittances from Filipinos working abroad while working on a research that later on won the competition. The research proposal was titled “Remittance Investment Climate Analysis for Rural Hometowns (Ricart): Piloting a Tool to Determine where Overseas Filipinos from Two Rural Hometowns can Best Invest their Money.”

Once again congratulations sir and keep up the good work!
