40 Scholarship Students Bound for Australia
Australia’s Ambassador today farewelled the latest 40 high-achieving Lao men and women who have received Australia Awards scholarships to study at Australian universities starting in 2018.
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!
