 “Economic Disparities and International Business Ethics” 30th Anniversary of the Business School at the University of International Business & Economics

and the 8th Annual International Business Ethics Conference
 
December 8th – 9th, 2012
University of International Business & Economics (UIBE),

Background
In its recent report, Asian Development Bank (2011) has published its outlook for East Asian economic development in 2012 with aggregated GDP growth of 7.2%, 0.3% lower than this year, with downside risks from euro-zone and US recession, trade protectionism, destabilizing capital flow and inflation (though the headline inflation moderated in China and begun to ease in Newly Industrialized Economy(s), the issue “remains a concern for several economies”), which calls for implementation of “appropriate short-term macro-economic responses” and pursuit of “necessary long-term structural reform”, with which the key words of “balance” and “re-balance” occupy the solutions suggested to set priorities in the areas of human capital, infrastructure, financial development and promoting small and medium enterprises (SME) to “foster factor accumulation and productivity growth”.
 
Since their inception in 2000, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been upheld as the ultimate goal and vision for national, regional and global development. In reviewing the progress of past years and looking ahead for the future, UN Secretary-General, BAN Ki-Moon (2011), highlighted the necessity to achieve the goals through “equitable and inclusive economic growth, that reaches everyone and that will enable all people, especially the poor and marginalized, to benefit from economic opportunities”. Despite the issue of disparity has been acknowledged frequently and highlighted during the September 2010 MDG Summit in New York, the degree and extent of this socio-economic phenomenon have never been clarified without sufficient analytical research, let alone root causes or possible remedies (Wan & Zhang, 2011)
 
Recognizing China as the major driving force of the Asian and world economy, and the “globalized dilemma” requires “globalized solutions” with “globalized perspectives”, at the 30th anniversary of the Business School of UIBE, the Business School of UIBE,the Center for International Business Ethics (CIBE) and the Center for Multinational Company Studies at UIBE will host its annual international conference – “Economic Disparities and International Business Ethics”. The mission of the 2012 conference is to analyze the phenomenon of disparity including the widening gap between the rich and the poor world wide and in the Asian context, to forge the ethical sense while exploring the progress achieved in different areas of International Business Ethics in the global context.
 
This conference shall provide an open platform and bring together renowned scholars and business leaders from around the world. It also encourages the participation of young researchers and managers worldwide who are committed to the development of international business ethics in China and Asia.
