Philippine HRD Yearbook 1985.
Los Angeles City Human Relations Commission, CA.
This yearbook is the first edition of a year-to-year review of human resource development (HRD) in the Philippines. As the first chronicle of its kind in the country, the yearbook offers a comprehensive survey of the growing relevance of HRD from 1966, when the Philippine government officially adopted it as a national policy, through the year 1984. The volume is divided into seven parts. It opens with an overview of developments which serves as a thematic summary of the entire volume. The following topics are discussed in the next sections: HRD and government, HRD and education, HRD and industry, HRD and the regions, and HRD and the National Manpower and Youth Council. Finally, it closes with a discussion of future prospects for Philippine HRD. The yearbook contains an extensive collection of statistics and data on issues such as the labor force, the educational system, rural development, and industrial capacity, among others. (KC)
