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 fifth 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.
