President shares his views on the importance of attracting Belt and Road students
PolyU President, Prof. Jin-Guang Teng, highlighted the importance of attracting students from Belt and Road countries to study in Hong Kong during an exclusive interview with Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK). He believes such efforts would strengthen connections with these countries and bring long-term economic benefits to Hong Kong.
Prof. Teng, who attended the Belt and Road forum in Beijing as one of the Hong Kong delegates, pointed out that PolyU had already been actively involved in connecting students with key partners in the Belt and Road Initiative. “We have been sending students to Belt and Road countries for Service-Learning projects. For example, we have sent students to Kazakhstan, Cambodia and Rwanda, where they have provided valuable services to communities in need.”
Prof. Teng emphasised that bringing in more students from Belt and Road countries would benefit society as a whole, “By attracting the best talent from these countries to study and work in Hong Kong, we not only address our talent shortage but also establish important connections with these countries.” He explained. “This, in turn, provides us with more opportunities to develop our economy and business relations with these countries, allowing us to play a greater role in the overall Belt and Road Initiative.”
