The 3rd International Conference on Business and Policy Studies (CONF-BPS 2024) is a leading conference on applied economics, enterprise management, and public administration. Cardiff University, University of Aberdeen Business School, and Peking University Research Center for Market Economy are co-organizers of CONF-BPS 2024. CONF-BPS 2024 is open to international participants. It provides an excellent opportunity for scholars interested in applied economics and enterprise management to share their findings and achievements, thus promoting communication and cooperation. This conference is supported by faculty members from Oxford Brookes University, University of Plymouth, University of Aberdeen, Durham University and The University of Sydney.

To break the barriers of time and space and to provide seamless communication opportunities for worldwide scholars, CONF-BPS 2024 will be organized distributedly with dispersed venues. Transnational academic workshops are the decentralized co-organisers of CONF-BPS 2024 and will be held at Cardiff University (Cardiff, UK), University of Aberdeen Business School (Aberdeen, UK), and Peking University Research Center for Market Economy(Beijing, China). Besides these workshops, CONF-BPS 2024 is a hybrid conference, establishing an online session and welcoming participants from all countries and regions to join whenever and wherever possible.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to highlight the importance of economics and policy studies as well as establish new collaborations in these areas. The conference looks for significant contributions to finance, accounting and banking, enterprise management, and business ethics in theoretical and practical aspects.
