SED on school in Greater Bay Area
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, after attending the launch ceremony of a drone competition in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area organised by Rotary District 3450 today (October 13):

Reporter: Mr Yeung, can you tell us more about the schools that are going to be set up in Greater Bay Area? Is there any worry that there will be enough demand? Will these schools only be targeting at Hong Kong students?

Secretary for Education: Hong Kong will be participating in the Greater Bay Area development. We are expecting that there are more Hong Kong people going to the Greater Bay Area to work and for future development. So we think there may be a need for the children of these people to study Hong Kong curriculum. We are exploring with the Guangdong Provincial Government and other cities' governments the possibility or feasibility of setting up schools with Hong Kong curriculum. It's still at a very early stage but we've already had good support, at least from the Education Department of Guangdong Province.
