The Peradeniya Economics Research Symposium (PERS) is organized annually by the Department of Economics and Statistics at the University of Peradeniya. The 2017 Symposium is the forth in the series, with the first symposium held on August 29, 2013.

The main objective of this event is to provide an interactive forum for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the discipline of Economics, and for junior economists.

It is also open to other scholars in economics and to researchers from other disciplines who focus on economics-related research, to enable them to present their work to a wider audience and to engage in an intellectual discussion with peers, academics and other researchers.

All extended abstracts presented, and the keynote speech are published as Symposium Proceedings.

Previous symposiums saw young economists and scholars engaging in vibrant intellectual discussion. We believe they were able to incorporate creative criticism and suggestions in their research and see it as a productive outcome of the symposium. Previous Symposium Proceedings are available in the Department and the extended abstracts and keynote address can be downloaded from the PERS website.

Besides the formal events the Symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to network with present/past and local/international economists.
