Lahore School of Economics students (Ali Hannan Malik, Anam Baig and Riyan Durrani) represented Pakistan at the Seventh South Asian Economics Students Meet 2010 in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The South Asian Economics Students Meet, held annually, aims to bring together undergraduate students from five South Asian countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal) to discuss various aspects of economics pertaining to the South Asian region. This year’s theme was economic freedom and the impact of the global financial crisis. Renowned professors from different South Asian universities along with key note speakers from the World Bank and the Institute for Financial Management and Research in India were also present at the three day conference held from the November 29 to December 1, 2010. The conference was hosted jointly by the Economics Department of the University of Colombo and the Friedrich-Neumann Foundation (FNF).
Riyan Durrani participated as a Budding Economist and reached the final round, in which he was interviewed by an elite panel of judges with questions pertaining to his fields of interest in economics. He was offered at the IFMR in India.
Anam Baig presented a research paper on a sub-theme of economic freedom (access to sound money). After presenting in front of an auditorium full of professors and students of economics, Anam had to answer questions any of the judges had pertaining to her presentation. Currently, the paper is under an evaluation process and is a candidate for publishing in the FNF journal.
Ali Hannan Malik participated in the Quizonomics category, which was solely coordinated by the World Bank. Students from the different countries were shuffled and grouped into three teams competing against each other. Ali Hannan was selected by his fellow colleagues as the team leader bringing his team the award for the Overall Best Team. Ali Hannan was also selected by his team members to make an impromptu policy recommendation speech as required by each time in the last round of the Quizonomics competition.
