Lingnan scholars shared insights at a roundtable and forum on “Enhancing Trade in Education Services: Education Hubs, Student Mobility and Policy Challenges” held at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 16 September. Lingnan President Leonard K Cheng, Vice-President Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho and Head of Sociology and Social Policy Department Prof David Phillips participated in and spoke at the roundtable.
In his presentation, Prof Mok analysed the topic “Hong Kong as Regional Education Hub: An Interim Assessment of Achievements and Challenges”, offering the definition and key concepts of an education hub as well as positive and negative factors that affect the development of an education hub in Hong Kong.
President Cheng gave closing remarks on “Beyond Trade in Education Services: Enhancing Cooperation – Education Hubs as agents for Social Change and Human Betterment”. He reiterated the importance of combining global and local insights. “To remain strong, we need to cooperate with other hubs and non-hub providers because Hong Kong is a small place. Let us all embrace collaboration in a world of competition,” said President Cheng.
