Dear & Esteemed Colleagues,
The Annual Singapore Academic Research Conference titled, ‘Thirteenth Asia-Pacific Academic Research Conference on Global Business, Economics, Finance and Social Sciences (AP17Singapore Conference) will be held in the Lion City of Singapore.
A ‘Call for Papers’ for the upcoming event can be downloaded from this page. You may also submit your abstracts/full papers/case studies using the ‘online submission window’ available at the ‘paper submission’ page.
During the conference, there will be a special panel discussion on the topic ‘Creative thinking and problem-solving skills! How to teach these skills to our students?’.
The upcoming conference is being jointly organized by Global Business Research Journals (GBRJ) and SDMIMD, a prestigious management school functioning in Mysore, Karnataka State-India.
The primary theme of the upcoming academic research conference is ‘Focus on the Future!’.
The global economy faces many challenges! While low oil prices and weak growth affect oil-exporting economies in the Middle East, many European economies do face sluggish growth owing to many reasons. US and Japanese economies have not registered solid economic growth during the past three to four years. Although so many far reaching measures have been initiated by these governments, they are yet to yield tangible results.
Slowing Chinese economy and reduction in commodity prices also send mixed signals about the future of global economy. Emerging economies such as Brazil, South Africa, India, Thailand and a few other economies also have registered signs of growth prospects, of course, with mixed signals.
Although temporary problems appear to be tampering the growth of the global economy, the future appears to be excellent as every nation works on nullifying the factors that contribute to slowdowns and recessions.
Undoubtedly, coordinated efforts among nations would certainly go a long way in ensuring rapid economic growth in the long run. More specifically, nations should work on real GDP growth, low inflation, full employment, satisfactory current account balances, export of goods and services, higher per capita income etc.
On the other hand, policy makers should also ensure the following: reducing national debt to prudent levels, fixing the problems of income inequality, reducing carbon emissions etc.,
Against this backdrop, the upcoming academic research conference in Singapore will make an earnest attempt to achieve the following objectives:
a) identify the major factors that help fuel solid economic growth of a country;
b) examine the factors which cause sluggish growth and recession;
c) provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, bankers and practitioners to share their research and practical experiences on all the major issues highlighted as above in global economy; and
d) offer suitable solutions to ensure an orderly growth of the global economy and bring prosperity and sustainable economic development to the World, in the long-run.
