Makassar has enormous potential to be the driving force of Indonesia’s economy through their resources such as the industry sector, fisheries, food, and ecotourism. To assist the Makassar government to fulfill the city’s potential, i3L organized an international conference in Makassar in 2019.

We opened submission for research papers and case studies, we also provided an opportunity not only for scholars to share their recent research, but also for practitioners to share their insights on the industry. This conference was attended by 156 participants from international and local universities, industries, and government.

The main theme of the 2019 ICEPBM was “What is the future of Eurasia Pacific?”.
