In his welcoming address, Mr Chow thanked the Honorary Fellows on behalf of the University for their unstinting support and wise counsel to CityU over the years. “Our new Honorary Fellows deserve our gratitude for always making time in their busy schedules, offering their wisdom and valuable experience in contributing to and facilitating the University’s development,” Mr Chow said. “With the support of these distinguished individuals, the University has made great progress.

With the leadership of the Council, and the hard work of the faculty, staff, alumni and students, we are confident that CityU will continue to prosper,” he said.
