Director's Message
  I am happy to announce that IIFT will hold the 5th edition of its trademark International Conference 'EIITF' (Empirical Issues in International Trade & Finance) on 16TH & 17TH December, 2016 in Kolkata campus on the challenging theme of  “International Trade at Transaction Level and Effects of Global Recession”.

We will be happy to welcome you at our new Kolkata Campus on the eve of this Conference. The central focus of the conference will be on the operational issues as they require sharp attention of both researchers and policy makers. Currently most issues relating to day to day trade amongst nations getting more and more complex, hence the central focus of the conference will revolve around International Trade at transaction level. This year we have delineated four tracks for in-depth discussion: Transactional Level Analysis of International Trade; Global Recession and Finance; Trade Facilitation and Sectoral Level Functional Analysis. These four tracks will help us exploring the finer aspects of trade transactions in all dimensions including the contagion effect of global recession. We are also planning to hold special lectures on contemporary issues involving global trade.

While looking forward to a round of vibrant deliberations and exchange of ideas, I sincerely hope that it will throw up new policy dimensions for the academia and deepen our knowledge of the complex process of globalization. I am confident that this conference will provide you a good platform to share your research outcomes and knowledge with other colleagues across the globe.

Looking forward to meet you in the conference in December, 2016.


Sh. Ajay Kumar Bhalla, Director
