Welcome to ICMBT 2020

Dear researchers,

My name is Michelle Kawamura. I am honored to be the conference chair of 2020 the 5th International Conference on Marketing, Business and Trade (ICMBT 2020) in Ritsumeikan University, Osaka, Japan from January 10 to 12, 2020. I am a tenured professor at the school of Economics at Ritsumeikan University. On behalf of the International Economics Development and Research Center, I would like express an early welcome to everyone participating. In these conferences we will hear about the research conducted in different fields, from various perspectives and backgrounds. It is conferences like this which brings us closer as researchers and friends worldwide. My hope for this conference is, regardless of our differences, that we can learn from each other and build a more globalized scholastic platform. As researchers we should find the links between different disciplines and backgrounds. With passion and collaboration, we can reach a broader realm of understanding and benefit our societies from more holistic research results.

I am especially excited because this conference will be held at Ritsumeikan University where I teach. Ritsumeikan University promotes diversity, tolerance and intercultural awareness. We bring emergent topics in our curriculum to the students that promote understanding and global awareness.

I look forward to sharing and discussing research and ideas with everyone and hope that this conference is able to illuminate possible paths moving forward.

Best Wishes

Conference Chair

Prof. Michelle Kawamura, Ritsumeikan University, Japan
