A NEW DAY IN HONG KONG
On November 30, 2018, more than 250 guests—including alumni, friends, and leaders from The Hong Kong Jockey Club, the university, and the community, as well as neighbors—attended a ribbon-cutting and opening celebration. Activities began in parts of the facility earlier in the year.
The Honorable Mrs. Carrie Lam, the chief executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, attended the ceremony and congratulated the university in strengthening its engagement in Hong Kong and Asia.
“Higher education institutions are essential to creating the talent we need to succeed in the global economy. They are also essential in connecting people, institutions, business, and governments. That is indeed the case today, as we formally welcome one of the world’s most prestigious universities, the University of Chicago, to Hong Kong,” said Lam in her speech as the ceremony’s guest of honor.
