The Faculty of Economics and Administration (FEA) at the University of Malaya is the oldest economics faculty in Malaysia. Since its inception in 1966, the FEA has contributed significantly to the national development agenda by providing research analyses that helped shape policies, and by nurturing high-level manpower with expertise in economics. As the faculty celebrates its 50th anniversary, it is timely to organize a conference to invite academics, researchers, industry players and regulators from around the world to take stock of what has been achieved, discuss economic issues currently faced by the world, bringing to the fore ideas on what policies are needed to surmount challenges both domestic and external.
This inaugural International Conference on Applied Economics and Policy (ICAEP) 2017aims to provide a platform for the interactions and networking among participants from around the world.
To provide a platform for academicians to interact with policymakers and industry players, we have reserved the afternoon of August 22 for three concurrent policy forums.
