November 17, 2021

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung and Ministry of Education officials held a regular working meeting in Shenzhen today.


Mr Yeung briefed Executive Deputy Director of the Office of Hong Kong, Macao & Taiwan Affairs of the Ministry of Education Xu Yongji and other officials on the education policies and measures in the 2021 Policy Address.


He also updated them on the implementation of citizenship and social development curriculum and national security education.


Both sides also exchanged views on education issues of mutual interest and followed up on the progress of collaboration projects, including strengthening Mainland exchange activities for Hong Kong teachers and students.


They include Mainland study tours as well as science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.


Also discussed were the plans of Hong Kong's universities and school sponsoring bodies to operate schools in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.


Mr Yeung said that the smooth implementation of various education initiatives in recent years have been conducive to Hong Kong developing an education system that is compatible with “one country, two systems”.


He added that it can leverage the advantages of local education to nurture students to become talent that the community needs, and help them extend their pathways by integrating into the national development and grasping opportunities in the bay area.
