Conference Objectives!

Global Economic Problems!

Global economy faces many issues and challenges. Some of the issues are short-term and quite a few, long-term, in nature. Among the short-term issues, recessions caused by temporary economic shocks such as credit crunch and momentary see-saw movements in stock markets could be mentioned, here. However, these temporary shocks and adverse movements usually correct themselves, in course of time. These are considered as part of any economic systems as these movements offer both challenges and opportunities for investors and the business community.

Fixing Long-term Economic Problems!

There is, of course, a stark difference between short-term and long-term economic problems. While short-term problems soften in a phased manner, long-term economic problems such as global inequality in income and standard of living, poverty, more particularly, in large part of Africa and select Asian economies, global warming and fast depletion of natural resources should be tackled with coordinated efforts and strategic approach by all the stakeholders, economists and global powers.

Against this backdrop, the upcoming conference in the beautiful city of Hong Kong makes an attempt to achieve the following objectives;

1) Providing an ideal platform for academicians, researchers and economists to share their research findings on global economic challenges, more particularly, the route-causes of such perennial problems and the ways and means to fix them;

2) Identifying the most efficient ways in which global growth can be ensured for generating massive employment opportunities in different sectors;

3) Ensuring that greater interaction among researchers lead to inter-disciplinary research in order to solve and tackle global economic problems; and

4) Suggesting suitable measures to ensure an orderly growth of the global economy.
