HKETO, Brussels promotes Hong Kong opportunities for banking and finance postgraduate students in Luxembourg (English only) (with photos)

     As part of its ongoing efforts to attract overseas talents to Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Brussels (HKETO, Brussels), reached out to students in Luxembourg to promote opportunities for young talents.

     On March 10, the Deputy Representative of the HKETO, Brussels, Miss Alice Choi, briefed a group of international students from the Luxembourg School of Finance (LSF), which is the Department of Finance of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg.
     The LSF, which has close ties with the Luxembourg financial centre institutions, offers a Master of Science programme in Banking and Finance, a Master in Wealth Management, and an Executive Programme in Wealth Management for senior private bank and wealth management professionals.

     At the briefing, Miss Choi elaborated on Hong Kong's unique advantages under the "one country, two systems" principle since 1997 and on its role as an international business and financial centre, a leading off-shore Renminbi business centre as well as a "super-connector" between the Mainland of China and the rest of the world.
     Miss Choi said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government welcomed talents, professionals and entrepreneurs from around the world to work and stay in Hong Kong with a view to enhancing the city's competitive edge in today's globalised economy.  As one of the world's main financial centres, there are plenty of opportunities for banking and finance graduates to establish their professional career in the city.  She also explained various talent admission initiatives including the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates and the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme.  Her briefing was followed by a lively question-and-answer session, during which students asked many questions about Hong Kong and living conditions in the city.

     On April 14, Miss Choi will give a similar briefing to a group of master students at the University for Foreigners of Siena, a public university near Florence in Italy specialised in the teaching of languages.
