|ABOUT ACFEA BIENNIAL CONFERENCE
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.
