Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Meets with Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Education of HKSAR Government
2018/01/24

On January 23, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming met at the Chinese Embassy with Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Education of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government. Minister Counsellor Chen Wen and Minister Counsellor Wang Yongli for Education of the Chinese Embassy, and Priscilla To, Director-General of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London, were present.

Ambassador Liu talked about the development of China-UK "Golden Era", and in particular, the education exchanges and cooperation between the two countries. He said that the UK has more Confucius Institutes and Confucius Classrooms and host more Chinese students than any other country in Europe. The enthusiasm for learning Chinese continues to heat up in Britain, and more than 600 primary and secondary schools are offering Chinese courses across the UK. The education cooperation between the two countries is deepening day by day. The outcomes of joint schools and research cooperation are especially impressive. The Ambassador expressed the hope that Hong Kong, as a bridge and link for the China-UK relations, would seize the opportunity to strengthen education and people-to-people exchanges and cooperation with Britain so as to make contributions to the "Golden Era" of China-UK relations.

Secretary Yeung said that Hong Kong and Britain have close educational exchanges, and Britain is the number one destination for Hong Kong students. Hong Kong stands ready to continue to give play to its own strength and make its contribution to promoting people-to-people and cultural exchanges between China and Britain. Yeung also extended his thanks to the Chinese Embassy in the UK for their consular protection and assistance to Hong Kong students and residents in the UK.
