University of Limpopo
The Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Limpopo tis calling for papers for its three-day conference on Development Finance and Economic Transformation under the theme, ‘Finance, Transformation, Development and Growth in Developing Countries for the 21st Century’, taking place from 27-29 October 2013 in Phalaborwa.
The developing world is beset by teething financial and economic challenges that impair societal transformation and development. Whereas Africa has continued to enjoy an average economic growth rate of about five percent in recent years, the global economic and Eurozone debt crises are destined to catch-up with most countries in the continent. Simultaneously, the governance, or lack thereof, of the international economics and politics has become increasingly complex as China and the BRICS, in particular, strive to out-compete the traditional economic powers such as Japan, United States of America and the European Union, which are the traditional sources of development finance and reform policy prescriptions.
It is in this context and in pursuit of the university’s motto of ‘Finding Solutions for Africa’ that the Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Limpopo, South Africa, invites scholars, practitioners, students, policy makers and politicians to submit abstracts and papers for the first International Conference on Development Finance and Economic Transformation.
