Outstanding PolyU Alumni Association Visits Customs and Excise Department

On 20 May 2024, the Outstanding PolyU Alumni Association paid a visit to the Customs Headquarters Building in North Point. Led by President Ir Dr Samson Tam Wai-ho, JP, and coordinated by Director Ms Mary Yu Wah, the delegation comprised of over twenty participants, including Outstanding PolyU Alumni Awardees from previous years and their mentees, along with representatives from the Alumni Affairs Office of PolyU. They toured various facilities and had the privilege of joining Deputy Commissioner Mr Woo Wai-kwan for a dinner, elevating the experience to a truly unforgettable occasion. The visit commenced with an exploration of the exhibition gallery themed “The History and Development of Hong Kong Customs in the Past Century”. It provided a comprehensive understanding of the historical development of Hong Kong Customs and highlighted the department’s achievements in areas such as anti-narcotics investigations, consumer protection, and international cooperation. The group was also granted access to the indoor firing range, a facility typically closed to the public. Everyone was left in awe and actively participated in this exclusive first-hand encounter. The subsequent dinner presented a valuable opportunity for networking and exchange. As distinguished PolyU alumni from diverse generations and sectors, they engaged in lively discussions about industry trends, shared insights on opportunities and challenges, and generously imparted their valuable experiences to the young mentees. With laughter and cheerful conversations filling the atmosphere, the whole event concluded successfully. The Association conveyed heartfelt appreciation to the Customs and Excise Department for their arrangements, which unveiled a treasure trove of invaluable insights and revelations.
