President encourages young people to seize opportunities in the GBA
Recently, PolyU President Professor Jin-Guang Teng gave interviews with three media outlets in Hong Kong and the Mainland, to talk about recent developments at PolyU and to give words of encouragement to the younger generation.
In an interview with Southern Metropolis Daily, Professor Teng shared his views on local institutes integrating into the Greater Bay Area (GBA). Citing the Hong Kong Polytechnic University - Shenzhen Technology and Innovation Research Institute (Futian), jointly established by the University and the Shenzhen Municipal Government as an example, Professor Teng said PolyU is committed to cooperating with different government authorities and enterprises to further integrate scientific research projects. He also hopes young people in Hong Kong can seize the opportunities provided by the Hong Kong Government in the GBA.
Professor Teng also talked about various subjects in interviews with Ming Pao Daily News and Sing Tao Daily, including updates on PolyU's campus, the potential opportunities arising in the GBA cities, and the University's dedication to nurturing its students to become leaders with a sense of social responsibility and an international vision. He mentioned that more digital, innovation and technology elements will be included in PolyU's Cluster Area Requirement subjects, thereby preparing students to meet the needs of the digital era.
Professor Teng furthermore stressed that PolyU’s education and research should echo the University’s motto “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind”, to create a positive impact on societal and economic development.
