In 2015, Thailand will participate in the newly-established ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) along with the other member countries, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. This organization will lead to important changes in the economy and culture of the region. The public and private sectors in Thailand have been urged to prepare themselves for and seek new opportunities from the upcoming ASEAN integration that will involve the free flow of labor, foreign investment relocation to countries with readily-available resources, and knowledge exchanges in economy and society.
The Faculty of Management Science at Ubon Ratchathani University is an educational institution which produces graduates and conducts research regarding business management to prepare for the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). The Faculty is aware of the changes, opportunities, impacts, and directions of becoming part of AEC. In order to better develop the economies and societies of the member nations, conferences which can trade ideas and tools for development are indispensable to the greater growth of the region, as well as the creation of new means of networking for scholars and businesspeople. Such conferences will provide new avenues of knowledge regarding economy and society which will prepare us for changes in the future. Therefore, it is a great opportunity and a big step forward for the Faculty of Management Science, Ubon Ratchathani University, to act as a co-organizer of The 1st International Conference on Social and Economic Prospects in the Southern Mekong Sub-region of Southeast Asia.
