The coronavirus is presenting a major threat to Australia’s education export industry, which is highly dependant upon the China market, and a huge challenge to the universities. Phil Honeywood, CEO of the International Education Association of Australia says:

This podcast was recorded before the government announced the further extension of the coronavirus travel ban to February 29.
