Dear & Esteemed Colleagues,
The Annual African Academic Research Conference on Global Business, Economics, Finance and Social Sciences (AAT17Tanzania Conference) will be held in Arusha City, Tanzania.
You are hereby cordially invited to submit your research manuscripts/case studies in all areas of research in business studies. We do organize, in addition to paper presentations, invited lectures on selected topics closely synchronized with the conference theme and topics related to Global Business, Economics, Finance, Banking and Social Sciences.
During the conference, there will be a special panel discussion on the topic ‘Ensuring Academic Integrity & Preventing Plagiarism!!-The role of an academician!!
The upcoming conference is being jointly organized by Global Business Research Journals (GBRJ), Greater Vision Conferences & Seminars and SDMIMD, a prestigious management school functioning in Mysore, Karnataka State-India.
The key theme of the upcoming conference is ‘Unleashing the Potential and Ensuring Sustainable Economic Growth for Africa!’.
Africa is a great continent in the world. Natural wealth, resources and manpower are abundantly available in the continent. If the manpower is trained according to the market demand and expectations, the continent could play a pivotal role in the world business landscape.
According to Dr. Vijay Mahajan, a Professor at the University of Texas, Africa has greater wealth in the world. He highlights that the average gross national income (GNI) per capita across all 53 African nations in 2005 was about $954, more than $200 higher than India’s. He further states that 12 African nations (with 100 million people among them) out of 53 had a GNI per capita that was greater than China’s. Twenty nations (with a combined population of 263 million) had a GNI per capita that was greater than India’s. That concentration of wealth represents a huge potential market for companies worldwide, according to Mahajan. Prof. Mahajan highlights a few key issues to be tackled in order to unleash the full potential of the great continent, Africa. He advocates overcoming the myriad economic, political, legal, medical and social challenges facing the continent. But, businesses across Africa have already proved that this is possible, feeding a fast-growing demand for every conceivable type of consumer good and service, from cell phones to banking to televisions, according to him.
Undoubtedly, the need of the hour is to implement a set of coordinated efforts among nations in the continent in order to ensure rapid economic growth in the long run. More specifically, African nations should work on real GDP growth, low inflation, job creation in order to offer employment opportunities for the masses, satisfactory current account balances, export of goods and services, higher per capita income etc.
Against this backdrop, the upcoming academic research conference in Arusha City, Tanzania will make an earnest attempt to achieve the following objectives:
a) identify the major factors that help fuel solid economic growth for African nations;
b) examine the factors which cause sluggish growth and recession and put forth suggestions to fix them all;
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.
