The Asian Business & Management Conference 2010

Osaka, Japan

Letter of Welcome From the Chairman of the International Academic Forum’s International Advisory Board & The Chairman of IAFOR Japan Dear Colleagues, Welcome to the inaugural Asian Business & Management Conference, held this year at the Hotel New Otani, Osaka, Japan. The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. This international event will bring together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share their research. We have been very impressed by the range and quality of submissions received from the open call for papers, from authors all over the world, and representing many disciplines and approaches. We are confident that everyone will find reason to be intellectually challenged and inspired by the work of fellow members of the global academic community. We encourage you, as academics working throughout the world, to forge friendships and working relationships with other participants across national, religious and disciplinary borders. It is in this spirit of friendship and international cooperation, that we express our warmest regards to every participant. We hope you enjoy the conference, Yours truly,

Osaka, Japan

Letter of Welcome From the Conference Chair of the Inaugural Asian Business & Management Conference

Dear Colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that, on behalf of the Organising Committee, I welcome you to Osaka and the Asia Business Management Conference, 2010. When this Conference was in its initial organizational phase, the world was experiencing considerable economic and financial turmoil. This led to an obvious choice of theme for the Conference: Challenges and Opportunities. Since then, little seems to have changed. There still exists great uncertainty. Challenges can vary greatly in their type and degree. The economic and financial challenges facing the world are as significant as anything since the Great Depression. But, in turn, this gives rise to significant opportunities. The Organising Committee has worked very hard and put together a Conference with a very interesting series of panels and papers under the umbrella theme. The Committee has brought together a number of experts and leaders from the academic and business world to provide us with their views and insights on the current situation, and future developments. I am certain that we will all take something of great interest away from this Conference. I encourage you to listen, question, and debate. At the same time, I trust that you will find time to enjoy the delights of Osaka, and make new friends.

Associate Professor David Wilkinson Conference Chair, ABMC 2010 La Trobe University Melbourne, Australia

In 1967, 552 students enrolled at La Trobe University, the third University to open in Victoria. It has grown to accommodate more than 26,000 students including approximately 3,500 international students from over 90 countries. Hong Kong University of Science & Technology Business School Established in 1991, the HKUST Business School is recognized as one of the youngest and most respected in Asia.

Our programs are consistently ranked among the very best in the world by international media and our faculty is considered to be among the most qualified. Chulalongkorn University, Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration In what has become the model for the creation of other international business school programs around the world, Chulalongkorn University entered into partnership with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, two of the foremost business schools in the United States. Jointly, they established Sasin — then known as GIBA — by modifying Kellogg's curriculum and academic regulations make it easier for Kellogg and Wharton faculty to come teach at Sasin. In doing so, they created a model that has since been repeated by Kellogg, Wharton and other prominent business schools around the world.

Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative GRLI is a global multicultural community of action and learning. It operates with a fully transparent and unique governance model with all partners participating. It is legally set up as a Foundation of public interest in Belgium. We identify and act on key leverage points for scalable change through concept development, advocacy and execution of new learning practices and work in partnership as a global community of change agents. Today the GRLI has 62 partner organisations and is expanding rapidly. It has set a limit of 120 partners for the years to come in order to remain a fully integrated and action oriented global network, and to fulfill its unique role as a leading global catalyst for key challenges and future demands regarding how to develop a next generation of globally responsible leaders. The work of the partners is supported by a Secretary General and a management office based at EFMD in Brussels and additional input from a team of senior advisers. The International Academic Forum Founded in 2009 by a group of concerned Asian, European and North American academics and business professionals, IAFOR is a mission driven organization dedicated to providing and promoting meaningful dialogue irrespective of international borders. As the Asia-Pacific region emerges as a new and powerful center of world events to rival the traditional European-American hegemonic axis, different and conflicting nationalistic fears and domestic political interests often dictate negative foreign policies. The stakes for ensuring cooperation between the Asian states and the Western world has never been higher. IAFOR is committed to ensuring that Asian leaders and opinion formers in both the public and private sectors, in education, the media, and business, have the chance to meet their colleagues from other continents, and discuss issues of local, national and international relevance and importance. Heritage Asia Pacific Heritage Asia Pacific aims to raise international awareness of the challenges and opportunities in sustainable development in developing countries and support cross-cultural communities towards finding more effective, holistic solutions to sustainable means of green growth in Thailand and across Asia. World Food Programme Born in 1962, WFP pursues a vision of the world in which every man, woman and child has access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. We work towards that vision with our sister UN agencies in Rome -- the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) -- as well as other government, UN and NGO partners. In 2010 we aim to reach more than 90 million people with food assistance in more than 70 countries. Around 10,000 people work for the organization, most of them in remote areas, directly serving the hungry poor. Hope International Development Agency Established in 1975, HOPE International Development Agency's mission is to enable people in the developed world to connect with people in the poorest communities on earth through compassionate giving and other opportunities to help. This year alone, our work will positively impact the lives of more than one million people worldwide.
