The Philippine Railway Institute (PRI) of the Department of Transportation (DOTr), has gained FULL SUPPORT from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)

In a statement, CHED conveyed its commitment to provide incentives for continuing education of the personnel that will run the railway sector and develop university-university linkages in railway research and development.

Likewise, CHED Chairman J. Prospero De Vera III expressed his gratitude and lauded the firm resolve of Secretary Tugade to put PRI in place, to further develop the capabilities of the railway personnel.

"CHED would like to thank DOTr Secretary Art Tugade for his leadership in establishing the PRI and for inviting CHED to be part of this initiative to develop the manpower needed in running our railway system. More importantly, the Comission lauds the initiative of Secretary Tugade in expanding the scope of PRI's work to include research and development, so that top Philippine universities can link with Japanese universities to do researches that will address problems in railway development," Chairman De Vera said.

Envisioned to complement the massive railway network that is being built under the Duterte Administrationís "Build, Build, Build" Program, the PRI is being established as the planning, implementing and regulatory agency for human resources development in the railways sector.
