University of Southern Queensland Vice-Chancellor Professor Jan Thomas will be the only Australian university representative at the most prestigious forum for leaders in government, business and academia in Asia today.

Professor Thomas has been invited to participate in the Boao Forum For Asia (BFA) in Hong Kong on Monday to add her input into the session entitled “Education and Employment: The Input and Output of Education in the Innovative Asia Era—Dialogue between Educators and Students”.

The BFA promotes regional economic integration and while the forum is focused on developing Asian countries, they regularly invite leaders from other continents to share their visions on pressing issues in their region as well as the rest of the world.

“It’s a great privilege to be involved with the Boao Forum and be able to join in discussions about the future of education while providing a Toowoomba perspective,” Professor Thomas said.
