Professor Lawrence Lau, Vice-Chancellor of the Chinese University, presented commendation letters to the award winning students at the opening ceremony of the exhibition. He said, ¡§In recent years, we begin to systematically support and encourage our students to develop innovative technologies that can be applied to business and service industries. We are very glad that many of their projects have gained them licenses and awards. Others have been released in international seminars. These exercises greatly boost the academic standards and confidence of our students and widen their horizon.¡¨
Mr. Chu Zhu Nong, Director General, Education, Science and Technology Department, Liaison Office of the Central People¡¦s Government in the HKSAR, was officiating guest of the opening ceremony.
