University of Banjaluka & Marche Polytechnic University organise the 7th REDETE 2019 conference

New challenges facing transition and emerging economies


Call for Papers:

You are welcome to send your research abstract to the 7th REDETE Conference on entrepreneurship and economic development in transition countries which will be held on 24th – 26th October 2019 under the theme “New challenges facing transition and emerging economies”.

Transition and developing countries, particularly smaller ones, face many challenges that have been created by global political and economic adjustments. The world’s largest economies, such as the USA and China, in order to remain completive, frequently destruct global economic equilibrium, thus leaving little space to smaller and less developed economies to position themselves in the global market.

The aim of the 7th REDETE Conference is to encourage researchers, as well as practitioners and policy makers to contribute to our understanding of sustainable economic growth in the context of new global challenges.
