Dr. Eddy C Fong, Chairman of
Since the establishment of the Open
University of Hong Kong, distance and open education has gained increasing
recognition and experienced growing demand in Hong Kong. We believe that with
continued efforts, it will become an important part of mainstream education and
manpower training in the future. In our arduous task of making available higher
"Education for All", we have been greatly encouraged by the support of the
community as well as generous donations from many quarters, which have been a
source of strength to us. This vote of confidence will inspire the Open
University to renew its endeavours in the quality and delivery of its
educational programmes as well as ease of accessibility, to support Hong Kong's
aims of becoming a knowledge-based society.
An investment in knowledge is an investment in our future. May I invite you
to join forces with the Open University to promote open learning and build a
better tomorrow for our society.
