We share Dr Lui's care for civilisation development and the welfare of mankind. We hope that, as an Honorary Trustee of the university, Dr. Lui will continue to share his valuable opinion on the university's future development so as to drive it becomes one of the top institutions in the world, and eventually contributes to the progress of our country and world civilisation."
