The Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Paul Tang Kwok-wai, the Vice Chairperson of the Tsinghua University Council and leader of the delegation, Professor Han Jingyang, the Chairperson of the Association of Hong Kong Civil Servants Tsinghua Course Alumni, Mrs Mimi Brown Tsang Mui-fan, expert scholars from the Tsinghua University Course and 80 civil servants joined the opening ceremony held on the first day of the seminar series to witness the memorable moment of the 20th anniversary celebration.

The Civil Service Bureau has been organising national studies courses with Tsinghua University for senior civil servants since 1993, the programme with the longest history among all national studies courses. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mr Tang thanked Tsinghua University for supporting the Civil Service Training and Development Institute (CSTDI) in organising 89 classes for some 2,300 senior civil servants over the past two decades, which has deepened participants’ understanding of national policies and development.

The seminar series comprised three thematic seminars conducted by four Tsinghua scholars. Professor Zhu Yuhe and Professor Lin Tai shared their views on the “Chinese Dream” from historical and political perspectives; Professor Wang Zhenmin conducted a seminar on “One Country, Two Systems” and the Basic Law; and Professor Liu Meixun spoke on the topic of “The Latest Economic Development on the Mainland”. Around 250 senior civil servants attended the two-day thematic seminar series.

The professors provided incisive and in-depth analysis at the seminars. Their detailed explanations enabled participants to acquire a more comprehensive understanding about the subjects addressed. The informative seminar series was highly appreciated by the participants.

CSTDI has always strived to strengthen the exchange and communication between the Mainland and Hong Kong civil servants. A series of national studies programmes are organised in partnership with various Mainland institutes (including the Chinese Academy of Governance, Tsinghua University, Peking University, China Foreign Affairs University, Jinan University, Nanjing University and Zhejiang University) to enhance civil servants’ understanding of Mainland’s systems and culture. CSTDI also invites local and Mainland expert scholars to conduct thematic seminars from time to time to further enhance colleagues’ understanding of the latest developments on the Mainland.

   

In keeping up with the rapid development on the Mainland, CSTDI will continue to organise various national studies programmes to provide more learning opportunities for civil servants.
