Preface from the Conference Program Chair

I am delighted to welcome you to the 7th Global Conference on Business & Economics in Rome, Italy. In keeping with the tradition of Association for Business & Economics Research (ABER) conferences, we present you with a program of cutting-edge research in the field of Business & Economics, in the form of papers and panel discussions. The program continues to show a healthy mixture of high standards of selectivity coupled with wide participation from our academic community: 7th GCBE received 282 papers of which 224 papers were accepted, providing an overall acceptance rate of 79%. All manuscript submitted for the conference went through a double-blind referee process. The papers presented at the conference are also published in its proceedings.

Any ABER conference is only as good as the people who take time out of their very busy schedule to help put it all together. As Conference Program Chair, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Sue Driskill, Dinesh Jain, Jacquelyn Fox and Jenny Stanley. I am also grateful to our colleagues from Novotel La Rustica Hotel for offering to host this year’s conference and for their invaluable work in providing the necessary infrastructure and support for a successful conference. Finally, without your participation this conference would not have been possible. I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to you.
