The seminar began with a presentation by SARMA Siddhartha (GSMM2, India) under the theme of "the Rise of Foreign Telecom Companies in insurgent North-East India" in which he investigated foreign companies who have invested in the telecommunication industry in North East India. He also discussed his research plan and highlighted the key points of his literature review.

He explained the importance of the Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) in infrastructure development, presented his detailed analysis on a South Korean PPP and compared it with the situation in his home country of Nigeria. His thesis supervisor APS Professor TSUKADA Shunso also provided some valuable feedback and commented on further development needed in the field of PPP.
The final presentation was delivered by AHAMADH MUBARAK Mohammadhu Faleel (GSAM2 Sri Lanka). Under the theme of the "Socio-economic Impact on Migration of Sri Lankan Women to Middle East Countries", he spoke about female migration based on a case study in Sri Lanka.
