Mr Ouyang Kegang

Mr Ouyang Kegang is the Party Secretary and Provost of the Shaanxi Administration School and a member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference of Shaanxi Province. He is a seasoned administrator, and has made significant contributions to key publications and the administration and educational management of the province.

Mr Ouyang graduated from the Department of History of Shaanxi Normal University. Since then, he has launched a number of major provincial publications, written regularly for Shaanxi Daily, and served as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Shaanxi Yearbook. In 1988, he joined the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of Shaanxi, where he drafted annual work reports and resolutions, and edited the Practical Handbook for Shaanxi Citizens. In 1997, he was appointed to the body that drafted the 'Law of the People's Republic of China on Deputies to the National People's Congress and Deputies to Local People's Congresses'. He became Deputy Mayor of Weinan City, Shaanxi, in 1998 and, during his tenure, made major contributions to the development of local education, public health and television broadcasting. He was presented a national honour in recognition of his enormous efforts in promoting public health.

Since 2004, Mr Ouyang has been Party Secretary and Provost of the Shaanxi Administration School, a training base for county-level civil servants as well as cadres and operational managers of state-owned enterprises. Under his leadership, the School has received repeated commendations from the Chinese Academy of Governance and provincial leaders, and became one of the first academy-designated teaching and scientific research bases.

Mr Ouyang has for long dedicated himself to promoting cooperation among different institutions. In 1997, the Shaanxi Administration School became the first mainland education partner of the OUHK's Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration when they jointly launched a higher diploma programme. This programme was a success and, in 2002, the two institutions presented a Master in Business Administration. Mr Ouyang has offered tremendous support for these programmes, which have enrolled more than 500 students since their inception.
