The talk was very interesting but a little hard to understand since it was in Mandarin. It was not my strongest language so I was rather thankful for the English translation on the slides. The 2 speakers who introduced PwC to us where from the tax department. As tax consultants, they also went into detail about taxes in China. We were then able to compare the differences in taxes between China and Singapore.

Another speaker, Irene. a partner of PwC was introduced to us in the middle of the presentation. She was working in Singapore for many years before joining PwC. She had been with PwC for 14 years and is currently a partner of PwC. She answered all our questions and shared with us her experiences and views of PwC. She also made a comparison between China's corporate tax rates and Singapore tax rates.

As an Accountancy student, I have benefited greatly from the trip to PwC. It provided a valuable insight to an accounting firm and also what to expect should I continue to work as accountant. The speakers also heightened our knowledge of accounting and tax. For me, it was more like a talk introducing us to the corporate world, to open our eyes to the accounting industry.
