ADBI Summer Research Seminars, Macro and Microeconomic Issues in Development

ADBI will hold two inaugural research seminars in microeconomics and macroeconomics. The two research seminars are targeted at providing a forum for the early-career researchers from the Asian region (e.g. recent PhDs, post-doctoral researchers and assistant professors) to present their work, then discuss innovative, theoretical and evidence-based research on microeconomic and macroeconomic issues, relevant to the Asian region, and facilitate the sharing of ideas and views on these issues.
