The conference last April brought together students from the University of Michigan and the Hong Kong UST's Business School. It provided a platform for discussion among students from diverse socioeconomic regions to express their opinions in regards to current economic issues. Each university prepared a presentation on the economic situations within their region, after which we had an open forum for discussion. I was responsible for leading the research teams and collaborating with group leaders to prepare the final presentation.
