Introduction The Asia Pacific Journal of Advanced Business and Social Studies strives to become the leading publication in projecting the advances in these two rapidly-expanding disciplines that have been closely associated for some time. By presenting articles from these two areas in a single publication, researchers and management executives from both disciplines will have the opportunity to benefit from an even closer interaction between the two fields. As the primary publication for expanding business strategies, the Journal presents a vast scope of in-depth methodology and analysis, directly focusing on global business trends and advancements. The Social Studies component coordinates and offers foundational scholarly research and insights within the expansive spectrum of the Social Science categories. As the horizon of these sciences widens, and as they integrate more with business, it is imperative to demonstrate the relevant achievements and headway made in the diverse fields of application.
