Significance to research:
This conference enriches my knowledge of sustainable business development and management, particularly with some case studies focused in Asian countries and cities. Though presentations by various scholars and experts in the field, I found that there can be another angle of viewing my research. Not only from a perspective of geography or resource management, but also from a business or marketing approach. Some presenters have made short but precise presentations on topics that are related to my research, such as quality of work life, tourism planning and environmental management.
The interactions between scholars and participants game me the opportunity to broaden my networks in academia. In my session of presentation, I met a consultant firm director from New Zealand who was particularly interested in how the young generations view the development of Hong Kong in the coming ten or fifteen years, from a political, social and governance point of view. We had very good sharing and discussions before and after my presentation. I also met another professor from India who had shown his interest in my research and asked for my presentation slides.
