Sec. Cayetano W. Paderanga, Jr. was one of the main speakers during the first Youth Economic Summit on September 17, 2011 at the UP Engineering Theater. The event, sponsored by the UP Economic Society, gathered around 150 college students from different universities to further economic thinking and action on the two main aspects of Philippine development–education and labor. Paderanga presented the country’s latest macroeconomic performance, the outlook for the second half of the year, and the Philippine Development Plan: 2011-2016. Also present during the Summit were former NEDA DG Solita C. Monsod, former DepED Usec. Miguel Luz, and DOLE Sec. Rosalina Baldoz.
