The students heard a presentation from two journalists from CNN International while visiting Abu Dhabi.  CNNi produces a segment called “Along the Silk Road,” which reports on the interaction between world powers in the region spanning from China and the Far-East, to the Middle East.  This program is unique from other CNN news casts because it moves away from the business of the world and rather has a personable focus on real individuals and their struggles and successes in different world regions.  The journalists discussed that world trade and commerce is no longer dictated by the US or European governments, and other countries are currently engaging in the establishment of trade agreements throughout the region.
