To meet the growing demand for talents among the Belt and Road countries and regions, the “Belt and Road Advanced Professional Development Programme in Power and Energy” was co-organised by PolyU, Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) and The Hongkong Electric Company, Limited (HK Electric) for the sixth consecutive year. This cross-regional and multi-cultural university-industry collaboration programme is the first-of-its-kind in both Mainland China and Hong Kong, aiming to nurture senior executives and researchers through diversified, cross-regional, systematic and innovative training schemes.


A total of 32 participants from ten Belt and Road countries and regions joined this year’s Programme, with 11 seminars and talks organised in 12 days. Participants also visited various high-end power facilities, including SGCC’s training facilities in Jinan, the State Key Lab of Electrical Insulation and Power Equipment in Xi’an, and HK Electric’s Lamma Power Station and cable tunnels in Hong Kong, to learn about cutting-edge technologies and modern management theories.


Since its inception in 2018, the Programme has attracted 811 industry professionals from 43 countries and regions to attend, providing more than 10,000 hours of exchanges, online and offline training, and field trips.
