The primary goal of CENTRE FOR RESEARCH ON POVERTY AND ATTITUDE (PVT) LTD is to foster and support research endeavors across Asian countries, with a particular focus on developing economies. We aim to facilitate communication among researchers, academics, industry professionals, and policymakers. The center is dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of individuals and organizations across various domains.

MGCRD collaborates closely with both national and international organizations engaged in research activities. This collaborative effort strengthens the impact of research initiatives and promotes a broader exchange of ideas.

To advance research endeavors, our center has initiated the publication of two research journals: "Journal of Asian Development Studies" and "Journal of Global and Scientific Issues." These journals serve as platforms for researchers, academics, communities, students, and policymakers to disseminate and exchange knowledge through high-quality empirical and theoretical research papers, as well as case studies, covering diverse fields in scientific and development studies.

For today's businesses around the world, turbulence has become the norm, and businesses seek innovative solutions to face their peculiar challenges. Uncertainty and dynamism in business environments and localized approaches to business have hugely relinquished some traditional business and management practices, while the theme of globalization has now been a question in most parts of the world. Conferences on 21st century challenges are immense. However, today we have stepped into an era to dedicate all efforts to innovations, research, and practices that can sustain the growth of businesses in their own contexts. As it did in the past, the Faculty of Commerce and Management Studies of the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka, is very pleased to invite all scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students to share their research outcomes, findings, innovations, and practices for developing businesses for sustainable growth.

Papers can be sent under the given tracks mentioned below. However, papers that may not fall under the given track may also be considered if they relate to the conference theme.

Usual studies are carried out in the context of organizations. However, ICBI-2013 encourages papers that study relevant phenomena not only at the organizational level but also at the individual, social, national, regional, and global levels. Intersectional and interdisciplinary studies that contribute to developing the commerce and management fields are highly encouraged.
