2018 Conference

The 6th Indonesian Financial Management Association (IFMA) Annual International Conference will be held in Manado (North Sulawesi) on December 16-17, 2018.

The program committee cordially invites paper submissions from all areas of finance.

Manado is the capital city of the North Sulawesi province. It is located in the Bay of Manado, and surrounded by mountainous areas. Manado has many attractions, with the most popular attraction being the Bunaken National Marine Park. Established in 1991, the park was among the first of Indonesia’s growing system of marine parks. It is part of the Indo-Pacific region, which supports the highest marine biodiversity on Earth. The park comprises five islands:  Bunaken, Manado Tua, Siladen, Montehage, and Nain. With over 30 dive sites, the park offers some of the best coral reef diving in the world, while snorkelling in Bunaken is also very popular among tourists.
