The Asian Consumer and Family Economics Association (ACFEA) is a conference based organization and has met every other year since 1995. The past twelve biennial conferences were held in Malaysia (1995), China (1997), Korea (1999), China (2001), Taiwan (2003), United States (2005)Malaysia (2007), Japan (2009)Korea (2011), Taiwan (2014), Hong Kong (2016), and China (2018), respectively. The thirteenth biennial conference will be taken place at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2020.   


At the past twelve ACEFA biennial conferences, attendees exchanged opinions of common problems on consumer and family economics in Asia and the typical economic issues of the host country. The attendees arrived at a common understanding of economic development in Asia and deepened the understanding of the complexity and diversity of problems on consumer and family economics. It goes without saying that in those conferences, many theoretical, methodological, pedagogical, and policy issues in consumer and family economics areas in an Asian context have been addressed.
