The aim of the Third Annual International Conference on Business and Public Policy (ICBPP 2011) is to provide a forum for academic discussion on the global business and public policy issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

There is no better place to discuss issues of global perspective than in the U.S. capital city – Washington, DC. Participants will be able to enjoy shows, attractions, activities, and tours available in the capital city.

The following topics can be covered in your submission and presentation:
