Kota Kinabalu: Institute Sinaran students, Grace Wong Szee En and Agnes Lim Hai Thong won first prize in the Nottingham-World Bank Economics Essay Competition 2022 as joint authors.

The School of Economics at University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) introduced the economics essay competition in 2014, and the World Bank Group Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Finance Hub in Malaysia has been the co-organiser since 2021. 

The competition aims to get pre-university and high school students in Malaysia to explore contemporary issues in economics. There were 81 entries this year.

The topic was: “Why is climate change an issue in Malaysia? What climate change mitigation and adaptation measures would you suggest to the government? Discuss.”

Grace and Agnes touched on how climate change affects the Malaysian economy and the effectiveness of existing government policies to combat climate change. This was followed by recommendations.

Grace said the competition helped them to not only tap into writing skills but, more importantly, recognise and acknowledge the pressing issue of climate change in Malaysia. 

Their economics lecturer, Johnson James Chin is very honoured to guide them for this competition. Their winning essay can be read via the Nottingham-World Bank Economics Essay 2022 website at: https://tinyurl.com/NWBEEC2022
