11 Dec 2015
Prof Zhang Guangnan of Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) led a group of scholars and students from the University’s Centre for Studies of Hong Kong, Macao and Pearl River Delta and Collaborative Innovation Centre for the Cooperation and Development of Hong Kong, Macao and Mainland China to visit Lingnan University from 9 to 11 December for academic exchange.
The event aimed to broaden postgraduate students’ horizon and open more in-depth academic exchange. Arranged by Lingnan University’s Pan Sutong Shanghai-Hong Kong Economic Policy Research Centre (PSEC), the group from SYSU visited the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited and the City Gallery which features the theme of Hong Kong’s town planning and infrastructural development. Following the visits, two exchange meetings were held for economic scholars and research postgraduate students of Lingnan University and SYSU respectively to exchange ideas and experiences in their research works. Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho, Vice-President, Prof Wei Xiangdong, Dean of Faculty of Social Sciences and Director of PSEC, Prof Lin Ping, Head of Department of Economics, Prof Ho lok-sang, Consultant and Senior Research Fellow of PSEC, and a number of staff and postgraduate students in the Department of Economics of Lingnan University participated in the meetings.
Prof Wei Xiangdong expressed that similar exchange activities can enhance mutual understanding and collaboration between the two universities with benefits to the development of academic research, and help enrich knowledge of the postgraduate students of the two universities on economic and financial systems of the two places. Prof Zhang Guangnan remarked that this academic exchange activity of SYSU was mainly designed for postgraduate students, which offered a valuable opportunity for them to learn about Lingnan University’s Liberal Arts Education and the development of its international economics research. Such activities should be organised continuously as the integration of visits and exchange activities can enrich students’ learning interest and knowledge.
