The University recently received a generous donation of HK$4 million from The Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong (CMA) in support of the Scheme of Study Tour and Exchange for Undergraduates and Junior Chinese Medicine Practitioners of the School of Chinese Medicine. In recognition of the Association’s generosity, the teaching and research facilities on the mezzanine of the Jockey Club School of Chinese Medicine Building were named “The Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Education Centre”.

He said the recent donation made by CMA would enable our Chinese Medicine undergraduate students and junior Chinese medicine practitioners to experience for themselves beyond Hong Kong and reach out to the international arena.
In his speech, Dr. Eddy Li said CMA was committed to supporting the development of the education sector in the territory. He believed that the establishment of this study tour and exchange scheme would provide valuable opportunities for Chinese Medicine students to develop their global vision and enhance their experience.
