International symposium: Multinational firms from and in the

Asia-Pacific, global standards and host country

development


Sponsored by RMIT University’s College of Business, this one-day symposium will

bring together world-leading scholars and policymakers to present their latest

research findings and share experience on the role of multinational firms in shaping

global standards and host country development. 


There will be particular reference to multinational firms from, and operating in,

developing countries in Asia-Pacific. 


The symposium will also focus on multinational firms from emerging economies

such as India and China. 


In the last decade, an increasing number of firms from emerging economies have

sought international expansion with global footprints. Yet we know little about how

these firms may influence global standards or the consequences of these changes

for local producers and workers, particularly those in the developing world. 


How we involve multinational firms from developed economies to participate more

proactively and innovatively in the local community development in poor countries

also remains a serious challenge. 


This symposium provides an important platform for participants to discuss and

debate these issues with an objective of maintaining sustainable growth for firms

and long-term development for nations. It also provides an important learning

opportunity for emerging researchers.
