Another successful Hot Cities of the World Tour


March 5th, 2017 marked the conclusion of the ninth edition of Professor Karl Moore’s Hot Cities of the World Tour, which afforded thirty McGill students from across the University the opportunity to travel to Manila, Palawan and Hong Kong over reading week.

During this time, students ventured outside of the conventional classroom setting to be transplanted into some of the economic, commercial, cultural, and financial, hotbeds of the world.

In addition to taking in the sights and culture, they met with and learned from prominent leaders at each destination, including Gloria Arroyo, former President of the Philippines; Frank Sixt, CFO of Hutchison Whampoa; Jaime Augusto Zóbel de Ayala, Chairman and CEO of Ayala Group; and McGill alumnus John Holmes, Canadian Ambassador to the Philippines, who hosted them for a dinner at the official residence.
