CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR GRADUATE EDUCATION (ICGE) 2024 “Sustainable Development in The New Context: Country and Firm Level Perspectives”


Call for submissions 3rd International conference for graduate education (ICGE) 2024 “Sustainable Development in The New Context: Country and Firm Level Perspectives” expectedly organized by Foreign Trade University (Vietnam) and its partners on 04 April, 2024.

Sustainable development in the new context has attracted worldwide interest at both macro and micro levels. The world is facing unprecedented challenges for sustainable development such as infectious diseases, climate change, food insecurity, supply chain disruption, energy shortage, etc. With these geo-political, economic, social, and environmental instabilities, new issues have been rising at both country and firm level for achieving sustainable development. From country-level perspectives, digital, inclusive, and green growth and other outstanding affairs have been integrated. From firm-level perspectives, amidst the fragile macroeconomic environment and business fluctuation, firms have been trying hard on improving corporate ESG during the digital transformation process and finding out optimal solutions for rising matters as well. The issues of sustainable development at the firm-level are intertwined with those at the country-level.

The international conference on Sustainable Development in The New Context: Country and Firm Level Perspectives is co-hosted by Foreign Trade University (Vietnam) to address the interconnected issues mentioned above. The conference will provide a platform for debates on contemporary issues for academics, professionals, and graduate students to exchange the latest research findings, to share international experiences, and to propose policy recommendations for both developing and developed countries to reach the targets of sustainable development.
