About the conference
The conference aims to showcase the current research in management by bringing together academics, practitioners, policy-makers and interest groups from diverse regions and perspectives. In particular, the conference addresses some of the more pressing themes in developing countries, with a special focus on emerging economies. This will provide the arena to discuss and debate how knowledge created through current research and theories can be transformed to tangible actions to address contemporary challenges. In doing so, the conference facilitates knowledge sharing between countries of distinctive cultures and political styles, and an opportunity to learn from each other in building our capacities and cementing even closer ties in the region at sub-government level.
