The FEB Dean also expressed his deepest appreciation to the speakers, writers, and invited guests who participated in the conference.
“We convey our greatest appreciation to all authors who will present their research results for the next two days’ agenda. There are about 105 research articles that will be presented at this conference. In particular, we also express our appreciation to all invited speakers and guests. Hopefully, through this international conference, participants can gain new knowledge from the invited speakers and also participate in the entire series of conference agendas,” he hoped.
In both the welcome speech and the event opening remark, Prof. Dr. Jamal Wiwoho, S.H., M.Hum., as the UNS Rector, stated that regional economic development has been widely discussed among academics to reveal the latest issues on sustainable economy, natural resources and environment, and green economy. In particular, information and communication technologies, and sustainable business will boost local economic growth in the long term.
Therefore, current issues and research challenges in economic development, information technology, and sustainable business need to be discussed extensively. UNS, as one of the higher-ranking universities in Indonesia, pays more attention to these issues.
According to him, FEB UNS has taken the right steps by organizing a conference that raises strategic issues on regional economic development, information technology, and sustainable business in an international conference on August 25-26, 2022, which is known as the 2nd INCREDIBLE. (Humas FEB UNS)
