International Conference

International Conference on Global Financial and Business Environment (ICGFBE)

Date: July 10-11, 2020.     Venue: NDIM, New Delhi, India

The capital markets across the globe have gone under radical changes and received much focus since the financial crisis in 2008. In the recent times the commodity markets and other derivatives such as carbon emissions and the cryptocurrency markets have also emerged and are being traded globally. The central banks and regulatory authorities have been cautious and introduced a number of policy reforms with the objective of finding fine balance between prudent regulations and free markets to meet the emerging challenges faced in the financial capital markets. The vitality of the markets is crucial for sustainable economic growth and efficient allocation of scarce resources.

Global markets are changing rapidly and are becoming more interdependent in all its aspects. This interdependence of the markets and the pace of changes that are taking place globally requires engagement with the global community of experts. Similarly the corporate reliance and dependence on global financial markets in the emerging economies have increased significantly in view of the cost and risk consciousness of variety of financial products and financing options available in the markets. The challenges too are manifold in terms of regulatory aspects, expanded opportunities and changing role of financial institutions. With the rapid development in business and technology, enterprises are now facing escalating competitions and vague opportunities. How to assist enterprises in gaining competitive advantages through technological and managerial innovations has become a crucial issue for both academicians and practitioners.

Objective of the conference is to bring together experts in the field of finance, business, policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders holders to deliberate of emerging issues in the field to inform future directions.

Probable outcome is robust discussions on the relevant issues and the presentations will be published in the conference proceedings. Some of the presented papers at the conference will be published in the journals represented at the conference.

Need for this conference With the rapidly changing global environment there is a need for these robust discussions on these issues. India has been lagging in academic debate and international conferences and with its emerging position in the global economic environment Indian institutions are in a unique position to host conferences of this nature. It is also our civic and academic responsibility to host such gatherings to further the cause of research
