Call for Papers

Economics and Finance have always played a central role in the development and growth process of a nation. Critical empirical analysis of classical theories and development of new theories assumes a central role in furtherance of the fields of study. Questioning obsolete theories, approaches and practices has become the need of the hour and some rigorous brainstorming sessions and exchange of ideas are essential to chart a path forward.

SVKM’s NMIMS, Bangalore Campus, in collaboration with The Indian Econometric Society, is pleased to announce the 2nd edition of its International Conference on Economics and Finance (ICEF-II), to be held on 13th & 14th December, 2019. The conference theme, “Asia’s Growth: Opportunities and Challenges for Global Economy”, has been chosen while observing the global environment with the emergence of Asia as an economic powerhouse. A number of countries express great fear of this trend, while others greet it with much admiration. In the last four decades, Asia has been experiencing phenomenal economic growth, restructuring its economic structure, and liberalizing its financial markets. The growth and opening up path has not been free of hurdles and impediments for Asia. The theme will attempt to evaluate the future prospects taking into account the stock of accomplishments and the highly volatile environment.
