The University of Hong Kong and Shenzhen University are expected to set up campuses in each other's cities
"The University of Hong Kong landed in Shenzhen, and the University of Shenzhen landed in Hong Kong." This scenario of mutual benefit in higher education resources between Shenzhen and Hong Kong is expected to be realized in the future.
According to Guangdong media’s Yangcheng Evening News on March 3, Li Qingquan, a representative of the National People’s Congress, Party Secretary and President of Shenzhen University, said in an interview with the media that he will continue to promote higher education in the Greater Bay Area this year. The issue of educational development is actively voiced.
He suggested that Shenzhen should have the courage to become a "special zone" in exploring the autonomy of running schools, the higher education in the Mainland and Hong Kong should "two-way flow", and Shenzhen University should be "the first to eat crabs"-planning to set up a campus in Hong Kong.
"In recent years, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has become the fastest-growing region in the world for higher education, not one of them!" Li Qingquan said.
At present, in addition to the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen), which has been running schools and is developing rapidly, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in Guangzhou, City University of Hong Kong in Dongguan, Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Foshan, The Open University of Hong Kong in Zhaoqing, and the University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen are also under construction or Under construction.
"This is very meaningful to promote exchanges between the two sides, but it is only one-way. Young students in Hong Kong will not benefit much from it." Li Qingquan believes that Hong Kong cannot only "export" but not "import" in the field of higher education.
He suggested that under the framework of the development strategy of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, we should actively promote higher-level two-way exchanges and cooperation in higher education between the Mainland and Hong Kong.
Li Qingquan said that Shenzhen University is studying the establishment of a school in Hong Kong.
If this idea is realized, Shenzhen University can bring into play the characteristics of innovative and entrepreneurial talent training in Shenzhen University, provide Hong Kong young students with more courses suitable for employment, entrepreneurship and development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and solve the series of difficulties faced by Hong Kong and Macao young people; It is conducive to young people from Hong Kong and Macao to find employment and start businesses in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, which is objectively beneficial to Hong Kong’s prosperity, stability and long-term stability.
