|Second Research Conference on Empirical Issues in
International Trade & Finance |
In an era of globalization trade in
goods and services and flow of capital across the countries are
playing a key role in their economic growth. Countries have embarked
upon a number of tracks (unilateral, regional, bilateral and
multilateral) to liberalize their economies in alignment with world
economy. As they substantially benefit from this effective
participation, these economies are constantly engaged in negotiating
market access for trade and investment. This growing interaction has
resulted in a phenomenal rise in world trade and investment. This
process of internationalization of economies has deeply motivated
scholars, academicians, policy makers and others to pontificate on a
number of interpretations, academic enquiries, cross examining etc.
to find out whether the current growth models based on trade and
investment are beneficial to developed as well as developing
countries especially in the aftermath of this recent unparallel
global financial crisis. Whether alternative models are available
and what cost can be worked out for the economies to experiment?
Researchers across the world are analyzing these issues both
theoretically and empirically at great length. Data availability,
substantial improvements in statistical techniques, computing power
and theoretical innovations are helping scholars to examine various
dimensions of international trade and finance. Against this
backdrop, the Conference aims to provide a platform to young and
experienced scholars to debate on these issues through their
research findings. |

The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) was set up in 1963 by the
Government of India as an autonomous organisation to help professionalise the country's foreign trade management and increase exports by developing human resources; generating, analysing and disseminating data; and conducting research. Today it is one of India's most prestigious business schools.
The Conference aims to have intellectual discourse on issues related to international trade and finance and provide platform to the researchers for communicating their views on their intellectual standing of empirical research in international economics.
To encourage young researchers who are currently pursuing PhD in the area of international trade and finance a separate track is added in the Conference. The session is open for all doctoral students pursuing PhD in Indian universities ( or recently submitted their thesis but degree is awaited).
