 The AEPR conference on the theme of “inequality, social justice, and welfare in Asia” was held online on April 8th, inviting domestic and foreign experts. At this conference, we actively discussed the current situation and future outlook for poverty and disparities in Asia. Discussions were held not only on the general situation in Asia, but also on the circumstances of individual countries such as Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. The paper submitted to the conference will be revised based on the discussion, and will be published in January 2023 after being reviewed by the editor.
