Australia Awards Applications Open Online
Australia continues to invest in Laos’ human resource development with 30 new tertiary scholarships planned for the 2019 intake of the Australia Awards in Laos.
Last Friday evening a large crowd of Australian alumni and invited guests listened to a panel discussion on the impact of foreign direct investment in Laos. The event was based on the ABC television show “Q&A” and featured the members of the panel grappling with a number of tough questions from the audience. The Australian Ambassador, Mr John Williams, also clearly enjoyed his role as the panel’s moderator. This is the second Q&A event hosted by the Australian Embassy, and there will be another one next year, so stay tuned!
