Kevin Yeung to visit Beijing

September 26, 2018

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung will leave for Beijing on September 28 to take part in the professional exchange activities of the National Day delegation from the educational sector.


More than 130 education workers will join the delegation this year, including representatives from professional education bodies and Education Bureau advisory bodies, as well as kindergarten, primary and secondary school principals and teachers.


The National Day Delegation from the Educational Sector of Hong Kong has been organised since 2006.


To tie in with the country's 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, a series of thematic visits and exchange activities are arranged to enhance Hong Kong education workers’ understanding of the country’s education developments and its history, culture and latest developments.


The programme also promotes exchanges between Hong Kong and Mainland education workers to broaden their professional perspective.


As in previous years, the delegates will be received by state leaders and Ministry of Education officials.


Mr Yeung will return to Hong Kong on October 1.


During his absence, Under Secretary for Education Choi Yuk-lin will be Acting Secretary.
