The Eighth Biennial Conference of ACFEA 本文へジャンプ
July 2nd – 5th, 2009, Yamaguchi, Japan イメージ


The Asian Consumer and Family Economics Association (ACFEA) has met every other year since 1995. The past seven biennial conferences have been held in Malaysia, China, Korea, China, Taiwan, United States, and Malaysia, respectively. At the past ACEFA conferences, attendees exchanged opinions of common problems on consumer and family economics in Asia and typical economic issues of the host country. The attendees exchanged the information and deepened the understanding of the complexity and diversity of economic development and consumer and family economic issues in Asia. It goes without saying that in those conferences, many theoretical, methodological, pedagogical, and policy issues in consumer and family economics areas in an Asian context have been addressed.

As a developed country, Japan has accumulated a large amount of experiences and lessons that are precious for Asian countries experiencing economic growth or those having to some extent achieved the target of economic development. Therefore, the Eighth Biennial Conference of ACFEA joined in with the Consumer and Family Meeting sponsored by the School of Economics, Yamaguchi University will be taken place in Yamaguchi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. Focusing on consumer and family economics, this joint conference aims to provide a forum for researchers involved in the areas of economics, consumer economics, family economics, agricultural economics, marketing, management, pedagogy, psychology, sociology, economics teaching, business, or government policy, and people who are interested in Asian consumer and family economic issues to exchange information and network.
