REPORT OF THE SKYPE SESSION WITH DA VINCI CAMPUS, RONSE, BELGIUM
The present times are laden with opportunities for our youngsters to travel around the world, sitting in the comfort of their living rooms. Technology has given them limitless options to explore the world at the click of a mouse. K.R. Mangalam World School, Vikaspuri had a riveting Skype Session on 18 October, 2019, under the ISA Project- “Tricky Coins” on the topic- “Fluctuation of Currency in an Economy” which bears a testament to the fact that these sessions have colossal benefits for the students by bridging them globally. Class XII Economics students had a congenial and enlightening conversation with the Belgian students where they discussed the details of currency fluctuation and its impact on the economy globally.
After a formal greeting and introduction, the students opened the discussion on factors that may affect currency value in terms of trade between the two nations. Their students took pride in sharing the very fact that their country has large entrepreneurial investment which is helping the country greatly in stabilizing their currency value. Our students also enthusiastically shared India’s status of trade with China, Japan, U. S. and other European countries also talked about the political influence affecting policies at international level.
After the informative session, the students were immensely motivated to know more and they were brimming with questions about government’s role in implementing effective education system, taxation policies and overall infrastructural development. The Indian students got to know how Belgian policies are linked to the European Union polices as Belgium is an integral part of the European Union, and how Belgium is being affected due to Brexit. In return they also shared our taxation policies and other approaches and initiatives taken up by our government.
This informative conference ended with the students talking about the ever so diverse cultures and many aspects of the two great nations. The whole session was so engaging for our young delegates that the time flew like an arrow for them which proved how brilliantly this discussion had brought together the two very different budding representatives of the new age education system.
