Prof. Way Kuo (President, CityU) gave an opening speech and told us good news that CityU improved in different university ranking system and our Engineering School was ranked No. 1 in Hong Kong. He said measurement was important. Then Prof. Kuo asked some cohort “Are you marriage?” If answer was No, that means no one ranked No. 1 in your mind. If answer was Yes, your husband / wife was ranked No. 1 in your mind. So everything had measurement whatever qualitative or quantitative.

Then I selected some countries for sharing included India (2004), Vietnam (2011), Kazakhstan (2011), Uzbekistan (2012), Vladivostok – Russia (2016) and Lao PDR (2016).
Finally, I told president that we needed to employ OBOR scholarship to invite the best student from OBOR countries to study in CityU so as to establish our Soft Power for long term. My conclusion included to promote STEM education in secondary school, to promote OBOR scholarship, and to adopt the future industry needs into university program.
