Paderanga-Varela Memorial Lecture

As part of FEF’s 20th year anniversary and in honor of its late co-founders:  former Socio-economic Planning Secretary Cayetano Paderanga, Jr. and former Department of Education Undersecretary Francis Varela, the Foundation has launched the  Paderanga-Varela Memorial Lecture.

The first, in hopefully a series of annual lectures, was conducted last October 19, 2016, entitled  “Does Ending ENDO Contribute to Inclusive Economic Growth?”, where Dr. Vicente Paqueo, a fellow of both FEF and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies, presented his and Dr. Aniceto Orbeta’s paper on “Beware of the ‘End Contractualization!’ Battle Cry”.
