Currently, many countries (regions) in Asia as well as other parts of the world are undergoing transformation of economic structures, accompanied by new issues, changes and problems in the field of labour and employment relations. These countries (regions) have taken policies and measures according to their own specific situations, making theoretical and practical exploration and accumulating much successful experiences. However, they have experienced challenges and are still confronted with many new issues. The Asian Regional Congress aims to consider theoretical and practical issues, and to discuss and analyze the challenges and various situations, so as to promote better theories and practices. Meanwhile, it is also hoped to encourage innovation in theory and practice in the field of labour relations through discussions with academics and practitioners. This Congress provides a good opportunity to expand channels of international collaboration and strengthen the links among researchers, institutions, organizations and academics throughout the world to help to promote the development of harmonious labour relations.
We warmly invite academics, practitioners, policy makers and guests from all over the world to the Congress, to share thoughts and ideas. Distinguished international researchers and tripartite representatives will be invited to deliver speeches at the Congress.
