Education in Australia took center stage at the 5th National Economic Review held at NSW Parliament House in Sydney on 18 and 19 September 2014.

Hosted by public policy think-tank Global Access Partners (GAP), the National Economic Review is an annual Summit designed to lead the debate on productivity, infrastructure, innovation, education, job creation and economic growth. Its parliamentary format encourages open and constructive dialogue and offers unique networking opportunities for its speakers, delegates and international guests.

The 2014 Summit on Education welcomed state and federal ministers, public policy makers, chief executives and leading academics to consider the state of education in Australia today and its importance to the future of the nation.

The programme included speeches by the Hon. Andrew Roberts MP, Minister for Resources and Energy, NSW Government, the Hon. Christopher Pyne MP, Minister for Education, Australian Government, and the Hon. Philip Ruddock MP, Chief Government Whip.

The international guest speaker was Dr Sergio Arzeni, Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs and Local Development at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Topics ranged from international competitiveness to deregulation and reform.

    Nowadays education goes

    Nowadays education goes online because online course same time, give an opportunity to create a personal schedule and learn what you really want to. I noticed many try to run online courses and doing their best to provide good knowledge. I'd even say that such courses are even more effective than the ones you take in college.
