On 2 May 2019, we were honored to take a huge step towards this goal by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Chinese Securities Association of Hong Kong (HKCSA). This allows us to join hands in helping Hong Kong students land their internships or graduate jobs in Chinese corporations based in Hong Kong.
We are grateful for the MoU signing ceremony hosted by HKCSA in the Hong Kong Four Seasons, and we would also like to extend our warmest gratitude towards Mr. Lin Yong, Chairman of HKCSA, who acted as the signing representative for HKCSA and signed the MoU with our Chairman, Mr. Shannon Cheung, to kick off this meaning cooperation. It was our honor to have invited have Ms. Qiu Hong, Deputy Director of the Liaison Office of the Central Government in Hong Kong (LOCPG), Mr. Andrew Leung, President of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong, Mr. Sun Xiangyi, Director General of the Economic Affairs Department of the LOCPG, Mr. Chen Lin, Deputy Director General of Youth Department of the LOCPG, Mr. Joseph Chan, Under Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, and Mr. Jack Chan, Under Secretary for Home Affairs.
Fin Society is thankful to over 140 of our members and alumni students participating the signing ceremony. Their strong support has always been a key driver of our continuous improvement. We pledge to continue to actively engage in enhancing the competitiveness of the Hong Kong youths in finance, cultivate new finance talents, help them understand the RMB financial ecosystem and integrate into the overall national development, and consolidate Hong Kong’s position as a major international financial center and its overall competitiveness.
After the signing ceremony, we have organized three financial forums covering Macroeconomics of the Greater Bay Area, Connectivity Between Hong Kong and Mainland China, and FinTech and Risk Management. Students from current year internship programs participated the forum as their second orientation activity and to increase their knowledge in financial ecosystem in Mainland China and enable them to perform better in the upcoming internship.
