The first International Symposium on Business Cooperation and Development in South-East and South Asia under B&R Initiative will be held in Kunming, China in November 19th—20th, 2016. The symposium will discuss the business, trade, management, and cooperative model in South-east and South Asia regions under the background of ‘the Belt and Road Initiative’ and the establishment of AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank).

In this conference, we have received 162 papers and accepted 78 with the acceptance ratio reaching 48.76%. Each paper has been anonymously evaluated by two separate experts, and in the circumstance of the disagreement between the two experts the paper would be sent to the third expert for evaluation. After the authors modifying and revising their papers according to the review comments, the papers would be sent to the experts and they finally decide whether to accept or not.
