The Asian Dynamics Initiative (ADI) is pleased to announce the 5th international conference 'Growth: Critical Perspectives from Asia' to be held at the University of Copenhagen on 13-14 June 2013.

Prorector Thomas Bjørnholm
Minister for Business and Growth Annette Vilhelmsen

Keynote speakers:
Professor Edward Farmer, University of Minnesota: “Eurasia and the Path to Global Growth”
Professor Danny Quah, London School of Economics: “What’s wrong with Asia?”

Round table debate on Growth and Asia with Danny Quah (LSE) Carl-Johan Dalgaard (UCPH) and Jørgen Ørstrøm Møller (SMU and CBS)

Panel sessions on economic growth in emerging economies, Sino-Xeno encounters, green growth, transformation on the margins, local pathways of economic growth, cultural growth, population quality, social consequences of growth and more.
