The International Economic Summit is an educational program designed to teach high school and early college students about globalization, the free enterprise system and international economics. Last July Boise State led a delegation of seventeen Idaho high school students and teachers to Shanghai to facilitate the first International Economic Summit program, which involved 350 Chinese students from 25 high schools.

Light refreshments will be provided or feel free to bring your own lunch. The event is sponsored by Albertsons Library and Boise State University International Programs. For more information, call 426-3652.
