Overview

The International Conference on Public Policy and Entrepreneurship, organized by the School of Public Finance, University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City will take place on June 06 2020.

The early years of the 21st century mark the era of energy transitions. The current challenge is to find sustainable energy sources for the increasing populations and control the impact of carbon emission. Energy economics will be the pioneer in providing these sound solutions to the populations and environment. Research in energy economics and energy policy will help governments to better incorporate climate change problems in developing their public policies and poverty reduction measures.

Optimal energy and climate policy should be able to ensure energy security and promote more straightforward access to affordable energy services and sustainable energy systems. The impacts of these policies can be heterogeneous on firms, consumers, prices and technologies

This year’s theme is “Climate Change, Energy Policy and Entrepreneurs”, aims to create a forum for academics, doctoral students, and practitioners to present and discuss current and novel research on public policies, energy policies, climate change and other economics issues.

We are welcoming both theoretical and empirical research papers in various topics. See the Call for Papers for more details on the potential topics.
