The International Conference on “Creating Global Competitive Advantage” is to be held during August 7 – 8, 2004 in Udaipur, India and will be jointly organized by the LaxPra Foundation, India; New England Business Administration Association (NEBAA), Southern Connecticut University, USA and International Centre for Excellence and Competitive Advantage (ICECA), UK.

The topics of the Conference will deal with the full length and breadth of the concept of global competitive advantage (GCA). Firm specific factors have been researched in detail. New changes in the economic environment have altered many of the established games of the rule. The country cases of China and India have proved that the governance has a great bearing on the firm-specific-factors as well as chance factors. New research shows that governments leverage the firm and industry competitiveness in a significant way. Studies on regionalization of trade show that regionalization has emerged as a significant dimension of GCA. Economic integration offers tremendous opportunities but not everyone is benefiting equally. Hence this Conference deals with GCA in a comprehensive manner but with a special focus on:

1. International economic governance (WTO etc.) and changing contours of competitive advantage
2. Regionalization and GCA
2. Governance and global competitiveness
3. Special focus on LDCs/ Small island economies
4. Competitiveness paradoxes
5. History, culture, society and competitiveness
6. Strategy and management advances.

The Conference will represent the questions that pertain to the economic development agenda of all the developing economies and will deliberate on the answers to those intricate issues. The Conference provides an opportunity to highlight the issues and draw a wider group of participants into the research and policy debate. The Conference will be the opportunity to explain the new interfaces of global competitive advantage at global, regional, national, industry and firm levels. The aim of the conference is to show the different approaches of global competitiveness and economic development research and the interaction between Industry, Government and University at worldwide level. The Conference will host representatives of the Economic, Industrial, Academic and Political sphere, coming from the five continents. The Third World participation is a very important element for the success of the Conference.
