Flag-raising ceremony to celebrate National Day
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University held a flag-raising ceremony on campus to commemorate the 71st anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on 1 October 2020. Several hundred PolyU members, including Council and Court members, senior management, deans and department heads, staff and students, attended the ceremony.
The event was followed by a simple reception officiated by PolyU Council Chairman Dr Lam Tai-fai and President Jin-Guang Teng. Speaking at the event, Dr Lam encouraged members of the PolyU community to appreciate what the country had accomplished and the tremendous opportunities its development brought to Hong Kong. He said, “PolyU, as a member of the higher education sector, is committed to providing strong support for the country’s development through its teaching and research.”
President Teng added that PolyU not only contributed to, but also benefited from the development of the country. He said, “We at PolyU are dedicated to nurturing successful future professionals and leaders with a deep affection for their family and nation, an international perspective and a strong sense of social responsibility.”
