As you know, G-20 Summit, the major meeting of global leaders, will occur in Hangzhou on September 4-5.  Twenty heads of state will deliberate about the health of global economy and consider areas for coordination of policy across the globe. You are welcome you to participate in a model UN style symposium on Saturday 24 September to learn in depth the key issues on the agenda at the G-20 Summit in China.

Undergraduate and post-graduate students from any disciplines are welcome to join in teams to play the role of the leaders of the 20 member states.  This is a chance for you to meet other university students, as well as business and NGO professionals in Hong Kong who track the global economy.  Two panels of experts will discuss the results of G-20 from political and economic perspectives.

This will be a free-of-charge, one-day event, held on the new campus of the University of Hong Kong.  Please apply directly to the program http://www.hk-ac.org.hk/; Places are limited, so registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.  Last day for registration is Monday Sept 12.
