안녕하세요, 매경 청소년 경제 영어 토론 대회 운영위원회 입니다.

제 3회 대회를 앞두고서, 이전에 실행한 제 1회와 제 2회 경제영어토론대회 주제 공개에 대한 요청건이 있었습니다. 참고로 제 1회 대회 주제는 첫 공지사항으로 2015년도에 공개되었습니다. 공지사항에 나와있듯, 제 1회 대회는 각 한 주제로만 예선, 본선, 결승이 준비주제로 진행되었으며 제 2회 부터는 결승을 제외한 나머지 라운드가 즉흥으로 변경되었습니다.

제 2회에 마찬가지로 다가오는 제 3회 경제 영어 토론대회 역시 결승만 준비주제로 공지될 것 입니다. 제 3회에 관한 주제 공지는 추후 공지하도록 하겠습니다.
