CONFERENCE THEME

Covid-19 pandemic has infected millions of people and caused hundreds of thousands of deaths globally. The numbers are still growing, and the pandemic is far more than a health crisis. Today in a highly inter-connected and inter-dependent world never seen before, the impacts of the Covid-19 global pandemic like no others. What are the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the real economy in both long term and short term? How would the pandemic change consumers’ behaviors? Are the changes temporarily or permanently? How would the Covid-19 pandemic affect financial markets? What should be the appropriate policies responding to the pandemic? The answers to these questions, among many other Covid-19 related questions, are far from certain. The conference would like to invite submissions on Covid-19 related topics. There will be keynote speeches, papers presentations, and a panel discussion at the conference.
