Conference Objectives!

Of late, the World has been facing many economic challenges. Widening income inequality, fragile global economic and financial system, rising structural unemployment and resultant social unrest in different parts of the world and debt crisis in the Eurozone are the most prominent among them. Climate change-related challenges and scarcity of natural resources pose serious challenges to the international business and the World. For instance, according to a research report, there will be a tripling of the middle class by the year 2030. In other words, a little closer to 2 billion people will be added to the middle income group by the year 2030 bringing 80% of the World population into the middle income bracket. This phenomenal growth in consumption patterns poses greater challenges to the global economic system and the international trade, banking and financial services. With the result, the bigger challenge before us is to ensure creation of wealth for businesses and value for shareholders/consumers in an environmentally sustainable manner. Natural resources such as water, crude oil, gas reserves, minerals etc., are gradually depleting. So, there is an imminent need to analyze the root-causes of the above problems and make a coordinated effort to solve these issues so that both the present and future generations live in peace and harmony. Against this background, this conference provides a platform to academicians, scholars, researchers and industry practitioners to share their insights, views and research findings with the fellow academicians from different parts of the World. More specifically, this conference makes an attempt to:

a) Make a coordinated effort to identify and analyze sustainability-related economic issues and challenges being faced by the humanity, today;
b) Provide a platform for academicians/scholars, practitioners and researchers to suggest suitable ways and means to bring about sustained economic growth and development to the humanity;
c) Enhance opportunities for poor people so that they would contribute to the economic activities which would also help poverty reduction and narrow the gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’;
d) Ensure that the business community adopts renewable sources rather than the fast depleting resources such as farming, fishing, mining and fossil fuel;
e) Suggest appropriate methods to provide continued growth, prosperity and higher standard of living to the global citizen in a much more sustainable manner.
