Economics workshop with Cristina Cifuentes, ACCC Commissioner and OECD Australian Ambassador
25 Nov 2018
HSC Economics students participated in their second workshop in collaboration with Ryde Secondary College (RSC). The workshop focussed on China and their journey in becoming a highly globalised economy. This is part of Topic 1 of the HSC Economics syllabus, The Global Economy.
In the morning, a Senior Lecturer from Macquarie University presented on China's economy. Mr Farag, RSC, unpacked the strategies used to promote economic growth and development in China. Then Ms Edwards, RGHS and Mr Ward, RSC ran a workshop on how to write an economics essay and reviewed past HSC exemplar responses. After a pizza lunch, students were privileged to have RGHS alumni, Cristina Cifuentes present. Cristina is an ACCC Commissioner and OECD Australian Ambassador. Her presentation focussed on why economics is important as a career, especially for girls, and the role of the ACCC.
