Edward K Y Chen Distinguished Lecture Series 2018

The Faculty of Business and Economics was honored to have Professor Chan Heng Chee, Chairman of Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities in the Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Ambassador-at-Large with the Singapore’s Foreign Ministry, as the keynote speaker at The Edward K Y Chen Distinguished Lecture on November 19, 2018.

The Lecture started by an insightful talk by Professor Chan on the topic of “The United States and Asia: the New Geo-Politics and Geo-Economics”, followed by a panel discussion joined by distinguished guests Professor K C Chan, Ms. Tara Joseph and The Honourable Jeffrey Lam Kin-fung, and a Q&A session hosted by Professor Larry Qiu.

The “Edward K Y Chen Distinguished Lecture Series” was initiated by a group of former HKU students of Professor Chen from the early 1970s. Established through a fund set up in 2007, this Lecture Series represents a tribute to an honoured teacher and a distinguished scholar, and aspires to demonstrate the fine tradition of great respect and appreciation for Teachers and Mentors (“尊師重道”) to future generations. 

The Lecture Series is held annually and is presented by the Faculty of Business and Economics.
