SED to visit Beijing

     The Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, will leave for Beijing this Friday (September 28) afternoon to participate in the professional exchange activities of the National Day Delegation from the Educational Sector of Hong Kong 2018.

     More than 130 education workers will join the delegation this year, including representatives from professional education bodies and advisory bodies of the Education Bureau, as well as principals and teachers of kindergartens, primary schools and secondary schools. 

     The National Day Delegation from the Educational Sector of Hong Kong has been organised since 2006. To tie in with the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up of the country, a series of thematic visits and exchange activities are arranged to enhance Hong Kong education workers' understanding of the education developments of the country, as well as the history, culture and latest developments of the country, and to promote exchanges between the education workers in Hong Kong and on the Mainland to broaden their professional perspective.

     As in previous years’ National Day celebration and exchange activities, the delegates will be received by state leaders and officials from the Ministry of Education.

     Mr Yeung will return to Hong Kong on October 1. During his absence, the Under Secretary for Education, Dr Choi Yuk-lin, will be the Acting Secretary for Education.
