University Foundation Fund Trustee Meeting and Dinner
4 July 2007
The 5th University Foundation Fund (UFF) Trustee Meeting was held on 4 July 2007 at the Conrad Hotel Hong Kong. To express gratitude to the trustees, sponsors, friends of UFF and our supporters for their unstinting support to the University, Dr. Hung Hin Shiu, Chairman of UFF, personally hosted a dinner for them after the meeting. About 90 guests and staff joined the dinner, including Mr. Wilfred Wong, Chairman of the Council and of the Court; Mr. Cheng Yan-kee, Deputy Chairman of the Council and of the Court; Professor Ng Ching-Fai, President & Vice-Chancellor; Vice-Presidents and Deans.
Dr. Hung in his welcoming speech said the Fund had grown steadily and had a net balance of approximately HK$473 million. It has become an important source of support, enabling the University to sustain its quality teaching and research.
To allow guests have a better understanding of the University’s development, Professor Ng Ching-Fai reviewed the activities held last year to celebrate the University’s 50th Anniversary, student and staff achievements, and introduced our newly developed projects.
The dinner was livened up by students’ performances, including a string quartet, a prose recitation and a magic act.
