Charles K Kao Auditorium Naming Ceremony

Today, Prof. Charles K Kao and Mrs. Kao attended the naming ceremony of Charles K Kao Auditorium (Golden Egg) which is co-hosted by the Government and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation. It was my luck to have a chance to attend the ceremony.



I was waiting outside the auditorium.


Prof. Kao arrived.

Mr. Donald Tsang (The Chief Executive of HKSAR) introduced Charles K. Kao (Nobel laureate in Physics 2009 dubbed the “Father of Fiber Optics”) and his contribution in Hong Kong Science Park. Charles K. Kao was one of directors in the first board of directors in Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation.


Mrs. Kao presented for Prof. Kao and thanked for all supporters. She also pointed out to the importance of public awareness and government support to Alzheimer's disease.

When Prof. Kao and Mrs. Kao left, they looked so happy and said good bye to all.


After the event, I took a photo inside the auditorium for memory.


I am happy to have a photo with Prof. Yang (BCH Dept., CityU).


During the event, I met Prof. Ching (Chairman of HKCTC) and Dr. TL Ng (Honorary Chairman of HKQAA).

I wish the wave of Prof. Kao could enhance science and technology development in Hong Kong.
