The delegation also heard from Dr Graham Brownlow on the macroeconomic situation of Northern Ireland, and the use of economic models for shaping policy and decision making.
Dr Brownlow then facilitated a question & answer session, providing QMS staff and students the opportunity hear Ms Beckett’s views on a variety of topics including improving the diversity of staff working in Economics and the impact of Brexit in Northern Ireland.
