（The Second Announcement）
If it were said that 21st century is the century of Asia, it would be largely due to the huge number of Asian population which is accounted for about 60 percent of the world population. Asia is the most populous area in the developing countries of the world as well. Among the first ten largest countries in the world from population perspective, five of them are located in Asia, i.e., China (1st), India (2nd), Indonesia (4th), Pakistan (6th), and Bangladesh (8th).
Developing country, just as its name, implies the countries which are under the process of developing. Such countries are or were backward. They have the same experiences, possess the similar condition and social and natural environment, and are provided with the potential advantage of post-development. They could learn from each other, work in collaboration, and ultimately realize common development. Chinese government has put forward an idea of the community of human destiny, aiming to advocate the common development, especially among the developing countries.
We take Population and Development as the main theme of the conference so as to promote research in these fields in Asian developing countries through sharing academic opinions and displaying research results enhance “South-South Cooperation“ and the common development among “One Belt One Road” countries. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for equal communication among the scholars in the developing countries of Asia.
Complying with the broader thematic areas the content of the conference will cover a number of issues like fertility, marriage, family, mortality, morbidity, health, ageing, poverty, education, migration, gender, public policy, governance, development, human resource planning and social security etc. Apart from plenary meeting and group session, the conference organizer will also arrange participants to visit some best practice areas in development in the south-west of China.
