Inspiration and aspiration

At the High Table Dinner on his first evening at UIC, Mr Ng encouraged students to “serve to learn and learn to serve.” He revealed that relentless learning and dedication were the two things driving him all the way the last forty years.

“Being inspired is a good start, but never sufficient. You need to play your part, and build your own aspiration,” he added. “Don’t ever forget execution. You need to do it and try it. Don’t ever get fear of being there.”

At his lecture the next day “Education and Competitiveness: The Case of Hong Kong”, he spoke of the city’s population strategy, education objectives and planning.

Mr Ng said: “The vision and mission of our education policies is to offer all-round and balanced learning opportunities to our students to tap into their potential for whole person development and lay the foundation for their lifelong learning. As such they not only learn successfully, but can apply what they have lear
