Changjiang Weekly - - SOCIETY - By Liu Jia

The stu­dent del­e­ga­tion from Wuhan Britain-China School ranked first among all of the Chi­nese teams that par­tic­i­pated in the re­cent Na­tional Eco­nomic Chal­lenge ( NEC) in New York. Zhang Jing­wen, one of the four stu­dents on the team, was in­ter­viewed by an Amer­i­can TV sta­tion, be­com­ing the first Chi­nese high school stu­dent to be on Amer­i­can Con­sumer News and Busi­ness chan­nel.

The NEC, hosted by the Coun­cil for Eco­nomic Ed­u­ca­tion in the U.S., is an eco­nomics com­pe­ti­tion for high school stu­dents. It has been dubbed the Olympic Games in the field of eco­nomics. It opened a di­vi­sion in China in 2017.

Zhang said she has learned a lot about eco­nomics from her par­ents who are econ­o­mists.
