The theme of the first journal is ‘The World Turning East’ where the gravity of economic development is shifting from the West to the East. The Journal aims to promote and support educators, practitioners and students to develop their research skills, and enhance their knowledge and understanding as now major challenges facing the social, economic, politics and culture calls for a need of academia.
