Nigel Siegwart studied law and economics in Australia, and also in Hong Kong and Beijing under the New Colombo Plan.
“It’s really important to me to not just learn, but to contribute.
“Being a New Colombo Plan scholar gave me the opportunity to study and gain work experience in other countries, but it also complements the experiences of students from the Indo-Pacific region who come to Australia to study.
“Our joint experiences help us build strong personal and professional relationships across the region.
“I believe strongly that this helps us make our world smaller by breaking down barriers and providing great opportunities for Australians and international students alike.”
