What are the UGC's plans or strategies for facilitating Hong Kong to be an education hub for the region and beyond?

The 2009-10 Policy Address announced the initiative further to develop education services to enhance Hong Kong’s status as the regional education hub. Relevant information can be found at http://www.policyaddress.gov.hk/09-10/eng/p26.html. While not all initiatives relating to the development of educations services fall under UGC’s remit, the Committee fully supports that in promoting internationalisation.

It is the common goal of the Government, the UGC and the entire higher education sector to ensure that our graduates are globally competitive. The UGC believes that internationalisation will help diversify the local higher education sector, enhance cultural exchanges, and broaden the horizons of the local students.

To take forward this important initiative, the UGC will continue to work closely with the Government and UGC-funded universities to attract more quality non-local students and deepen internationalisation.
