SED to visit Fujian to strengthen education exchanges (with photos)

     The Secretary for Education (SED), Mr Eddie Ng Hak-kim, today (June 24) will leave Hong Kong for a two-day official visit to Fujian Province, with a view to strengthening exchanges with the officials and university leaders there and deepening education co-operation between Hong Kong and Fujian.

     Upon his arrival in Fuzhou, Mr Ng will first meet with leaders of the Fujian Provincial Government to exchange views on education issues of mutual concern, including the latest developments of Hong Kong students furthering studies at the universities in the province. He will then visit Fuzhou University for exchanges with its management and to meet several Hong Kong students to learn more about their study life on the Mainland.

     Mr Ng will meet with officials of the Xiamen Municipal Government tomorrow (June 25). He will also visit Xiamen University and Huaqiao University to exchange views with the university leaders and some Hong Kong students, and officiate at the inauguration ceremony of the Hong Kong Students' Association of Fujian.

     This year the Education Bureau has stepped up its support for Hong Kong primary and secondary schools to form sister schools with their counterparts on the Mainland so as to enhance professional and student exchanges. During his stay in Xiamen, Mr Ng will take the opportunity to visit a local primary school and attend an experience sharing session by the headmasters of the sister schools in Fujian and Hong Kong.

     Officers accompanying Mr Ng on his visit to Fujian include the Deputy Secretary for Education, Mr Brian Lo, and the Administrative Assistant to the SED, Mr Rick Chan. They will return to Hong Kong tomorrow night.

     During Mr Ng's absence from Hong Kong, the Under Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, will be the Acting SED.
