We invite submission of papers for a 2-day seminar on topics related to Asia and the Pacific economies. We are looking for original research papers in the field of theoretical and empirical economic and social issues. The Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) joins Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) with special sessions on financial inclusion and literacy, small and medium-sized enterprise finance, and infrastructure investment that broaden the scope of the research agenda. The Journal of Asian Economics provides selected papers with publication possibility in a special issue on “Financial Development in Asian Countries”.

However, early applications with a full paper are preferred. The working language of the seminar will be English. Only papers written in English will be considered. If there are two or more authors, please identify who will be attending. Selected papers will be notified by middle March or earlier.
