In the last seven conferences several eminent trade and finance experts graced the occasions and delivered special lectures. Paper presenters comprised of guests from all over the world. Over the years, EIITF has become a major academic conference in India on Empirical Issues in Trade and Finance.

The conference has also witnessed participation of senior officials from the Government of India in debates and forums. Several researchers have utilized this platform to release their books. In a nutshell, EIITF has evolved into a forum for bringing the academic outputs by researchers closer not only to their peers but also to policy makers and private sector.
