AEP - International Conference on Asia-Pacific Economic & Financial Development

The Australian Economic Papers of Wiley Publishing is pleased to announce the forthcoming International Conference on Asia-Pacific Economic & Financial Development which will be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from July 24-26, 2016. The Ho Chi Minh University of Economics has generously agreed to host the conference with special scholarship scheme to support the local contributors.

The conference was organised after considering a number of submissions for AEP from the Asian Region. This annual high-level conference aims to provide a forum for academics, policy makers and practitioners to share their knowledge and expertise on economic and financial development in the Asia-Pacific region. With the growth of Asian Financial Markets as its main theme, it is hoped that the inaugural 2016 Conference will attract those with particular interests in the Asia-Pacific capital markets and financial integrations to make it an outstanding event benefiting people not only in regional countries but also other countries all over the world.

The Conference will serve as an open and transnational collaborative platform for attendees to present their latest research and exchange ideas and information. A special feature of this conference will be a panel discussion session on promoting Asian research and publications. This session will be represented by a team of Managing Editors of internationally ranked refereed journals.
