Portuguese Economic Journal

July 5-7 2024 - Faro, Portugal

The Portuguese Economic Journal aims to publish high-quality theoretical, empirical, applied or policy-oriented research papers on any field in economics. The geographical reference in the name of the journal only means that the journal is an initiative of Portuguese scholars. There will be no bias in favour of particular topics and issues.


The Portuguese Economic Journal 2024 Conference is an international generalist conference in economics. Researchers from all fields of economics are invited to participate. Since its first edition in 2007, this annual conference has been a lively forum for exchange between researchers from all over the world.

Keynote Speakers
























Professor of Applied Economics, Universitat de les Illes Balears (SPAIN)






Professor at the Department of Economics, University of Sussex (UK)

The Portuguese Economic Journal 2024 Conference is organized by the Faculty of Economics, University of Algarve. The event is supported by two research centers: CEFAGE - Centre for Advanced Studies in Management and Economics; and CinTurs - Research Centre for Tourism, Sustainability and Well-being.

Faro is the capital of Algarve: The Southernmost region of continental Portugal. The Algarve is by far the most important Portuguese tourism destination. Its Mediterranean weather combined with magnificent beaches, pristine landscapes and tasty gastronomy makes it unforgettable for the visitor.
