The 4th Economics Leaders’ Congress: Reversing Brain Drain to Brain: It Starts with YOUth

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Take part of this year’s most awaited youth convention in the Philippines.

More youth will be inspired and empowered nation-builders as the De La Salle University launches the 4th Economics Leaders’ Congress, with its powerful theme:
Reversing Brain Drain to Brain Gain: It Starts with YOUth”.

The Economics Leaders’ Congress is a gathering of young leaders from all over the Philippines who take part in solving the most compelling social and economic issues at the time. ELC delegates have continuously committed to the mission of making a better and brighter future for all Filipinos.

The theme “Reversing Brain Drain to Brain Gain: It Starts with YOUth” is anchored on the issue that the Philippines is experiencing brain drain as one out of ten Filipinos goes abroad to work in sectors that have higher pay. Although OFWs fuel the economy through remittances, they are only partially compensating the loss because the productivity gains still mostly accrues to other wealthier countries. 

In achieving brain gain, there will be three pillars under the ELC theme: (1) Economic Builders to revive important skilled workers abroad and ensure country’s investment in education, (2) Innovative Entrepreneurship to stimulate future entrepreneurs and innovative ideas in the country in response to brain drain, and (3) Youth Empowerment to ideally instill confidence in the economy through the actions of the youth. All in all, these pillars highlight the young generation as the building blocks of a progressive and productive nation.

This 4th Economics Leaders’ Congress will be held at the Henry Sy Sr. Hall in De La Salle University - Manila on February 19-20, 2016 from 8AM to 5:30PM.
