FMET 2022 encouraged the exchange of information at the forefront of research in different fields, connected the most advanced academic resources in China and the world, transformed research results into industrial solutions, and brought together talent, technology, and capital to drive development.

In the conference, we had the honor of having invited both Prof. Satya Narayan Singh from HIPDET University, USA, and Assoc.

This offline conference was composed of three parts: keynote speeches, oral presentations, and online Q&A discussion, attracting 150 individuals and groups in the world. Firstly, keynote speakers were each allocated 30–45 min to hold their speeches. Then in the next part, oral presentations, the excellent papers we had selected were presented by their authors one by one.

At the beginning of the conference, three distinguished keynote speakers were invited to address their speeches. For a start, Assoc. Prof. Vilas Gaikar from University of Mumbai, India, performed a speech on the title Economics of Global Poverty: An Analysis of Post Pandemic Period. He showed that global poverty is one of the most serious issues facing the world and highlighted that it needs to be addressed by initiating various measures and the effect of pandemic in the future also needs to be reduced, which could only be possible by the joint initiatives by developed as well as developing nations in the world. In addition, Assoc. Prof. Au Yong Hui Nee from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia, made a report on Unlocking the Potential of the Digital Age: Bridging the Digital Divide amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This research demonstrated that developing a sound digital transformation strategy, with the appropriate structure and governance, stays a challenge for many firms. The study then presented an analysis of the role of digitalization a factor in economic development and investigated the drivers and barriers to digital economy. Their dramatic speeches had triggered heated discussion in the third part of the conference. Besides, every participant praised this conference for disseminating useful and insightful knowledge.
