Rejecting an Economy that Excludes and Developing Initiatives for the Creation of Wealth and its Equitable Distribution to Mindanawons
What must be done?
Universities to support studies and researches on the market that provide the basis for the creation of a new economic system anchored on the principles of accountability, transparency, good governance, social justice, environmental responsibility, and the ultimate aspiration for the common good.
Develop a new economy that is both gender-responsive and rights-based, that excludes none and responds to the needs of an increasingly just and humane society.
Promote an economy that creates wealth and equitably distributes it, beginning with real communities on the ground.
Propagate best practices and initiatives in entrepreneurship e.g. Lake Sebu Indigenous Women Weavers Association, Inc.
Institutional support for the vision of the Mindanao 2020 by integrating it in the curriculum and by using the document in leadership trainings.
Promote micro-finance to support socially just wealth creation; Harmonize it with Sharia-compliant finance progams.
Review the thrusts of our Colleges of Business, Management, and Governance. They must support the Action Points of the Mindanao Conversations and the Mindanao 2020.
Develop a group of young economists who are experts on the Mindanao economy; ADMU School of Economics through ADDU will help train young economists for service in Mindanao in the long term.
Support relevant research on the economy of Mindanao.
