Experts in international political relations and global economic affairs were invited to deliver keynote speeches, followed by the responses from representatives of religious organizations to share with us their views on the issue. We shared with our frontline teachers working on Liberal Studies, to explore and discuss about the contemporary and important issues on the relationships between globalization and international politics, economy, culture and religions, so as to keep secondary teachers and students abreast of the current international issues.
