He thanked the CityU community, its alumni, friends and many others for helping to establish a more caring image of the University. “Some listed companies in Hong Kong prefer to hire CityU graduates, a trend that shows how CityU is growing steadily in terms of its international academic status and research excellence, as seen in our rise up the world university league tables,” he said. On behalf of his fellow honorees, he emphasised that they would continue to contribute to the growth of CityU.
