DZUP's Rex Espiritu interviewed UP Mindanao chancellor Prof. Lyre Anni Murao on the proposed UP Bangsamoro Development Institute in the DZUP Balita episode of May 22, 2024. Chancellor Murao was interviewed in her capacity as chairperson of the Technical Working Group for the Creation of the UP Bangsamoro Development Institute (BDI).

In the interview, Chancellor Murao stated that UP has been involved in Bangsamoro with about 70 projects in the past two decades. However, the belief that UP can give more gave birth to the idea of creating the BDI. She mentioned the BDI's goals to be a think tank, adopt a multi-sectoral engagement with the BARMM and its external stakeholders, and institutionalize UP's commitment by creating the UP BDI. She emphasized that UP's approach should be within the context and aligned with BARMM's plans. She enumerated nine "baskets" of offerings that UP can offer BARMM: food, health, education, the environment and ecology, information and communication technology (ICT), governance, economics, maritime science, and culture and the arts.
