Conference Objectives!

Economic Success through Synergy!

Economic prosperity, growth and development can be quite successful only if there is ‘synergy’ among the different players in a country, which includes banks, financial institutions, government entities, regulators and other arms of the government. Understandably, presence of synergy among the different stakeholders and players would be a major driving force in order to give a fresh fillip to the economic activities of a nation. Many economies, unfortunately, struggle owing to the absence of this significant phenomenon.

New World Order to Tackle the Global Issues and Problems!

The economic and political issues being faced by the global community have been mounting, day by day. Some of the economic problems that warrant urgent action by the governments include, rising jobless growth, regional economic imbalances, mounting government debts in many countries, particularly in Europe, volatile financial and banking system, growing disparity between the rich and the poor, immigration of people from African continent to European and other countries through high-risk channels and damage to the eco-system. These are, quite understandably, very important issues that need to be addressed by the global community. Against this background, the upcoming conference is being organized in the most beautiful country of Thailand in order to achieve the following objectives;

Conference Objectives:

a) Identify and analyze the major global issues that need to be addressed immediately, in order to create a new and sustainable world;

b) Undertaking meaningful research activities on the above issues so that we create a new world order through a perfect synergy;

c) Provide an ideal platform for researchers, economists, bankers and practitioners to network and share their research and practical experiences to develop models and systems for addressing the global economic issues; and

d) Suggest innovative solutions to the above issues, in the days to come.
