Prof. WONG Suk-ying, Associate Vice-President represented CUHK at the 15th APRU Senior International Leaders’ Meeting titled ‘The Voice of Knowledge and Innovation: Challenges, Opportunities and Actions’ during 20-22 September 2017 at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico. Comprising meetings and various topical sessions on higher education, the 3-day event was attended by some 40 leaders from member universities. The current activities of APRU were reviewed and international engagement opportunities, particularly in the Pacific Ocean and APEC, were discussed.
