1999    Publisher of the Year

Citation Despite the economic crisis that hit the publishing industry, as it did all our local industries, last year, despite the continuing inability of government, the private sector, educational institutions, and the mass media to raise the level of real literacy in the country, the kind of literacy that enables Filipinos to read and purchase books, despite everything looking so bleak for everyone, one publisher kept the colors flying, kept the faith, invested in all types of books and not only in sure money-making ones, did not lower its standards not only for printing and marketing, but for the content of its books. This publisher consistently published titles of the highest quality, world-class not only in terms of what the books say or represent, but world-class in terms of general publishing orientation, a publisher really interested in strengthening the place on the world map that our country has made in the past decade or so.
