      Conference Objectives!

      Towards a Sustainable Economic Development!

      A report published by the United Nations reads as follows: “Roughly half the world’s population still lives on the equivalent of about US$2 a day with global unemployment rates of 5.7% and having a job doesn’t guarantee the ability to escape from poverty in many places. This slow and uneven progress requires us to rethink and retool our economic and social policies aimed at eradicating poverty”.

      “A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress. Even though the average annual growth rate of real GDP per capita worldwide is increasing year on year, there are still many countries in the developing world that are decelerating in their growth rates and moving farther from the 7% growth rate target set for 2030. As labor productivity decreases and unemployment rates rise, standards of living begin to decline due to lower wages”.

      These are no easy statistics and information as the policy makers need to re-visit the current strategies in order to improve the standard of living of people and also ensure greater economic growth in order to offer job opportunities to the millions of youth that are charned out of higher educational institutions.

      Further, yet another statistics informs us that 470 million jobs are needed globally for new entrants to the labor market between 2016 and 2030. This is, indeed, a mammoth task and government needs to plan employment generation very carefully in order to ensure a society that is cohesive and peaceful.

      Slow Global Economic Recovery is Not Good!

      Although, after the unpalatable and historic economic meltdown (2008), the global economy is on the path of recovery, it seems to be very slow. Sustainable Economic Development alone would help higher standard of living in the long run. Of course, expanding demand is crucial for global growth. Greater understanding and cooperation among countries will be very much required at this juncture to pave way for sustainable development.

      Many people, unfortunately, are under the wrong impression that sustainable development means getting back to pre-industrial era which is not right. In other words, getting a quality life in a more sustainable manner without harming the environment is sustainable development. We need to make use of the natural resources in a manner which will not harm the environment but help future generations to live, very peacefully. The recent (August 2019) Amazon Rain Forest Wild Fire has had a devastating impact on the American continents. An unprecedented increase of 77% increase on year-on-year basis has caused huge problems for human beings, animals, flora and fauna in around Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and Peru. Such incidents have to be curtailed on a war-footing as we lose precious natural resources and rain for the entire world due to climate change and global warming currently reaching to alarming levels. Yet another major problem being faced is that carbon monoxide, the toxic gas, engulfs human settlements causing respiratory disorders and other problems to human beings. All such issues and problems should be tackled and sustainable growth and development restored with the support and cooperation of countries across the world.

      Against this backdrop, the upcoming conference in the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland makes an attempt to achieve the following objectives;

      1) Providing an ideal platform for academicians, researchers and economists to share their research findings on ensuring sustainable global economic growth;

      2) Identifying the most efficient ways in which global growth can be ensured for generating massive employment opportunities and entrepreneurship in different sectors so that people can be gainfully employed.

      3) Ensuring that greater interaction among researchers lead to inter-disciplinary research in order to solve and tackle global economic problems; and

      4) Suggesting suitable measures to ensure an orderly and sustainable growth of the global economy.
