Simon Fraser University strengthens partnerships and fosters new opportunities in Hong Kong

, 9 November 2017 -- Andrew Petter, President of Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Vancouver, Canada, led a delegation to Asia the week of 30 October that included a visit to Hong Kong to strengthen existing partnerships and pursue new relationships.

SFU is ranked Canada’s leading comprehensive university and has deep connections with Hong Kong. With more than 2500 SFU alumni, Hong Kong is home to the University’s largest concentration of alumni outside of Vancouver. Distinguished alumni include David Fong Man Hung, Managing Director of Hip Shing Hong (Holdings) Co. Ltd and Grace Chan Hoi-lam, Miss Hong Kong 2013.

SFU enjoys partnerships with six leading universities in Hong Kong and is actively exploring opportunities to develop a pan-pacific business and culture program to engage Vancouver and Hong Kong-based business and community leaders. During his visit, President Petter visited Hong Kong Baptist University, one of its six partners, and met with President Roland Chin. A new memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed to facilitate ways in which the two universities will develop and carry out collaborative activities.

President Petter and the SFU delegation also visited Hong Kong Polytechnic University and meet with President Timothy Tong to explore opportunities to build partnerships and expand collaborations.

“As Canada’s leading engaged university, we were delighted with our visit to Hong Kong and our meetings with these two academic partners," says SFU President Andrew Petter. "The new MOU with HKBU reflects our mutual commitment to forge new collaborations, including double degree programs, to enhance opportunities for student exchange. Developing relationships in Asia has been a longstanding priority of SFU’s international engagement strategy, and we look forward to broadening and strengthening these relationships in the future.”

SFU particularly values its active relationships with Hong Kong alumni. During his visit to Hong Kong, President Petter hosted an alumni event which provided an excellent opportunity for alumni to reconnect with the University and each other. The SFU Alumni Association in Hong Kong currently holds 3-4 major events each year.
