National Economics Summit explores PH economy and global crises

The UP Economics Society presents the National Economics Summit (NES) 2023 “Navigating an Interconnected World: Exploring Global Economics Through the Filipino Lens.” 

On September 9, 2023, at the University of the Philippines Diliman, 200 of the nation’s most distinguished students, scholars, and professionals will convene at the premier youth-led summit to contextualize global economic events in order to discern the country’s current state and trajectory. 

Throughout the years, NES has cemented its status as a trailblazing summit with the aim of educating the youth on relevant societal issues through an economic lens. The Summit focuses on insightful and thought-provoking discussions, a broadened global outlook and real-world relevance, and the opportunity for personal and professional development. 

This year’s theme aims to better the collective understanding of globalization. The seemingly distant narratives of nations beyond the Philippines have caused shockwaves to our experiences as Filipinos. We see more apparent interrelations of global crises to the local socio-political and economic environment. Thus, in order for the country to continuously find its footing and excel, global phenomena must be looked into. As the complexities of today’s landscape continue to persist, the Summit offers a unique perspective of international events through the everyday Filipino lens. 

This 2023, the Summit aims to contextualize global economic events in order to discern the nation’s current state and trajectory. With the help of distinguished professionals, delegates will investigate global events and demonstrate the application of economic theories that can be visualized and appreciated from all backgrounds. This eye-opening experience offers a unique opportunity to gain a broadened global outlook and comprehend the real-world relevance of economic principles. 

Through thought-provoking discussions, insightful panels, and a collaborative case competition, the Summit seeks to engage its delegates to investigate the dynamics of global economics, rooted in their relevance in the Filipino context, in a supportive and synergized environment. On this journey to the summit, NES 2023 envisions its delegates expanding perspectives and forging meaningful partnerships. These interactions play a vital role in the delegates’ personal and professional development as the connections established at NES 2023 have the potential to unlock exciting opportunities that will continue to benefit the delegates long after the Summit concludes. 

This 2023, the National Economics Summit is co-presented by Unilever and Samsung and officially endorsed by the Philippine Competition Commission, the Department of Finance (DOF), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the UP School of Economics (UPSE), the Junior Economics Society (JPES), and the UP School of Economics Student Council. 

NES aims to prime its delegates to work and strive towards a more prosperous future for a nation within an interconnected world. Together, the National Economic Summit 2023 will forge a path toward sustainable growth that empowers the Filipino people.
