CUHK First Organizes Cultural Exchange Programme on the Belt and Road Initiative with Beijing and Lanzhou

 

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) first organized a Leadership and Cultural Exchange Programme on the Belt and Road Initiative, in collaboration with Tsinghua University (Tsinghua) and Lanzhou University (Landa), from 15 to 29 July.  This activity had a total participant of 25 CUHK students and 9 Tsinghua and Landa students to host cultural exchange and field study activities in Beijing, Lanzhou, Dunhuang and Hong Kong.

 

Apart from the visits to Imperial Palace, the Great Wall in Beijing, as well as Mingsha Mountain, Crescent Spring and Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, CUHK students also helped host the return visit to Hong Kong, which comprised campus tours, talks on Belt and Road Initiative with Dr. Victor Zheng, Assistant Director of Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies, and visits to museums, historical heritage and public organizations. Participating students took the opportunity to learn more about the relationship and interaction among Hong Kong, maninland China and the nation's Belt and Road Initiatve.

 

Prof. Wong Suk-ying, Associate Vice-President of CUHK, thanked Tsinghua and Landa for their effort contributing to the success of the activities in Beijing and Lanzhou.  She encouraged the inferflow of the students from 3 universities to actively experience Hong Kong, believing that such a series of activities can enable the participating students to gain a deep understanding of the city's educational, political, economic, social and cultural developments.

 

CUHK has been collaborating closely with Tsinghua and Landa since the establishment of partnership. A wide range of student activities in cooperation with the two universities have been held at university, college and faculty levels, among which summer courses, training programmes on national policies, thematic cultural camps and innovation and entrepreneurship activities are most popular among CUHK students.  CUHK jointed the "Belt and Road University Alliance" initiated by Landa in 2016 and subsequently planned this "Belt and Road" theme student activity with Landa and Tsinghua.  Special thanks are to be given to the Philip Wong Yu-hong Belt and Road Scholarship, which supported CUHK students' airfare to Beijing and Lanzhou.
