49th Advisory Committee Meeting held successfully 

The 49th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Textile and Clothing Industries took place on 3 July 2020 under the chairmanship of Ms Shirley Chan, Vice Chairman of YGM Trading Ltd. The committee members, which consist of the Head and Associate Heads of ITC, ITC committee chairs, and key industrial players, had a fruitful discussion. 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some members attended the meeting virtually. 

The meeting was very productive as the external members who have a wide range of expertise, shared their expectations for ITC students and graduates, and offered very constructive suggestions and feedback to ITC towards its efforts in developing future teaching and learning practices, research directions, consultancy endeavors, and strategic plans. 

In her capacity as Chairperson, Ms Chan thanked ITC during the meeting for the comprehensive report on its latest developments and hoped that the sharing from the industrial practitioners would provide more insights to ITC for future developments in both academics and student learning. 

At the end of the meeting, Prof. Jintu Fan also thanked the members for their continual support. The comments, opinions and suggestions that were provided in the meeting are constructive and would be taken into serious consideration towards actions that would further improve ITC programmes, research work and partnerships.
