Students Re-enact China’s Accession to WTO as Part of MIIS Trade and Development Program
July 21, 2010
Twelve undergraduate students from Shandong University are currently participating in a three week summer training course in Global Trade and Development at the Monterey Institute. As a part of the program the students took part in a re-enactment of China’s 2001 accession to the World Trade Organization. Each student had a role as a representative of either China or one of eleven other members of the WTO and presented their own written remarks as part of their training. The exercise gave the students an opportunity to practice their English in a simulated professional setting and tested their presentation skills.
This year, the Monterey Institute will be offering two Global Trade and Development summer training sessions. The Institute will host twelve Davis United World College scholars representing twelve different countries for a four week session exposing students to a curriculum covering trade and trade policy, development strategies and practice and their overlap and interactions with other crucial global issues.
