National Development Company joins the nation in celebrating the 20th Development Policy Research Month this September, with the theme “#CloseTheGap: Accelerate Post-pandemic Recovery through
Social Justice”, or in Filipino, “#AlisinAngAgwat: Pabilisin ang Pag-ahon Mula sa Pandemya
sa Pamamagitan ng Katarungang Panlipunan”. Through this theme, we wish to highlight how
the pandemic exacerbated existing socioeconomic disparities in the country and disproportionately
affected the vulnerable and marginalized sectors of society.
