I take great pleasure in congratulating you on the 80th Anniversary of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.


Since the establishment of the Government Trade School in 1937, over 365,000 talents, equivalent to more than 5% of Hong Kong's current population have been nurtured by PolyU and its predecessors. It is plain to see that this mind boggling monumental achievement is an indispensable part of the foundation on which the modem Hong Kong society is built. Furthermore, it is enlightening to note that in the delivery of this gigantic impact, PolyU has also been exemplary in learning and teaching as well as research and knowledge transfer.


I take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed to this great university and wishing PolyU further success in the years to come.
