     To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the launch of national studies training, the Civil Service Bureau (CSB) invited a delegation of expert scholars from Tsinghua University to conduct three thematic seminars in Hong Kong on the latest topical issues in the Mainland today (December 3) and tomorrow (December 4).

     The delegation was led by the Vice Chairperson of the Tsinghua University Council, Professor Han Jingyang, and included four scholars who conducted the three thematic seminars.

     Speaking at the opening ceremony on the first day of the series of seminars hosted by the Civil Service Training and Development Institute (CSTDI) under the CSB, the Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Paul Tang, welcomed the Tsinghua University delegation. He thanked them for their participation in the activities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of national studies training.

     Mr Tang said he was grateful to Tsinghua University for supporting the CSTDI in organising 89 sessions of courses for some 2 300 senior civil servants in the past two decades. The courses have deepened civil servants' understanding of national policies and development, he said.

     Two thematic seminars were held today. The first seminar, conducted by Professor Lin Tai and Professor Zhu Yuhe, covered the history and political views of the "Chinese Dream". The second seminar, on "One Country, Two Systems" and the Basic Law, was conducted by Professor Wang Zhenmin. The seminar to be held tomorrow, on the topic of "The Latest Economic Development in the Mainland", will be conducted by Professor Liu Meixun.

     The two-day thematic seminar series will attract a total of about 250 senior civil servants. The CSB has been organising national studies courses with Tsinghua University for senior civil servants since 1993, the programme with the longest history among all national studies courses.
