In his opening remarks, Professor Alan Chan, Provost of CUHK, recognised the importance of the event in gathering the collective wisdom of industry leaders to shape the future of Hong Kong.  “We need new thinking and new strategies that promote innovation and integrate with national strategies to seize the many opportunities arising from the development of the Greater Bay Area,” he said.

The keynote address was delivered by Mr Algernon Yau, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the HKSAR. He underscored Hong Kong’s pivotal position as a super-connector and super-value-creator in the region, emphasising the abundant opportunities the city offers for career growth, business expansion, and a fulfilling lifestyle.



The conference culminated in a captivating panel discussion on shaping Hong Kong’s digital economy by harnessing emerging technologies. The panel featured Dr Norman Chan, Council Vice-Chairman of CUHK and former Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority; Mr Nixon Chau (EMBA 2015), former Managing Director and General Manager of SenseTime Hong Kong; and Ms Queenie So, Founder and CEO of SyZyGy, a Cyberport-incubated creative tech company. The panellists shared their insights on fostering innovation and propelling the digital transformation of Hong Kong through cross-sector collaborative ecosystems and effective governance and policies.

Breaking barriers and bridging the gaps [#permalink]
FROM CUHK: Breaking barriers and bridging the gaps

Maggie (Kit) Yau (IBBA 2004)

Head of Marketing, Alibaba Group (Australia and New Zealand)

Melbourne, Australia


William Lau (MBA  2005)

Service Business Manager, Honeywell Japan

Ibaraki, Japan


Kelly Wang (FMBA 2004)

Teacher, Kumon North America Inc.

Seattle, the US

Q1. Could you briefly describe your current job scope or responsibilities?
  • Maggie: My major duty is to enhance the brand’s presence and implement strategic plans. I oversee marketing and government affairs strategy and build relationships with government agencies across Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Pacific Islands. I also collaborate with business chambers to facilitate local businesses on a global stage.
  • William: I oversee the entire service business for the distributed control systems in major oil refineries and power plants, as well as quality control systems in pulp and paper mills and battery thin film technology. I am also responsible for the profitability and performance of the service business in Japan.
  • Kelly: My primary role involves overseeing the education centre’s operations, as well as supervising and training our tutors to ensure the delivery of high-quality teaching. As a dedicated educator, I find great satisfaction in interacting with my students and guiding them to develop self-learning skills and achieve personal growth.
Q2. Please describe your residing location in three words.
  • Maggie: Vibrant, multicultural, scenic. Melbourne is famous for its lively culture, diverse arts scene, and bustling street life. The city truly embraces and celebrates its cultural diversity. Located among beautiful landscapes, Melbourne offers a visually stunning environment. It’s a place where residents can enjoy a serene and visually appealing backdrop.
  • William: Suburban, residential yet convenient. Ibaraki is a suburban area in Osaka Prefecture known for its residential neighbourhoods offering a quieter and more peaceful atmosphere compared to the bustling city centre. Its convenient transportation network allows for easy commuting to work or exploring other parts of the region.
  • Kelly: Emerald, cosmopolitan, and hi-tech. Seattle is blessed with lush green surroundings. Its natural beauty offers a captivating sight. Apart from being a cosmopolitan hub in the Pacific Northwest, the city also houses some of the world’s most influential tech companies. This solidifies its reputation as a leading force in technology.
Q3. Which industry do you see strong business potential in your residing location?
  • Maggie: Australia is known for its environmentally friendly and organic image. Industries like health and wellness, beauty and skincare, and mother and infant products are of strong potential. With its significant international economic connections, there are abundant opportunities to incorporate diverse cultural perspectives in different sectors.
  • William: The healthcare and social service industry holds significant business potential in Osaka Prefecture, and in Japan as a whole, due to the high number of elderly individuals living alone. Any business that caters to the needs of this demographic has a promising market in this area.
  • Kelly: The education industry has strong potential here. Seattle is home to a highly educated population and creates a demand for continuous learning and upskilling. The prestigious universities attract global talents, and the influx of students creates a demand for educational services, leading to opportunities for educational services and training providers.
Q4. What is the one thing you miss the most during your study at CUHK Business School?
  • Maggie: I miss the close bond with my schoolmates. From rushing for the school bus, exploring the canteen and spending time in the library, those memories hold a special place in my heart. Even now, some of the most important relationships are with those who were part of my IBBA journey.
  • William: The thing I miss the most during my study at CUHK Business School is the quality of lectures and discussions among fellow students. The campus provided a conducive environment for learning, and the interactions with professors and students greatly enhanced the educational experience.
  • Kelly: I certainly long for the cherished moments I shared with my classmates and teachers. The breathtaking scenery is also something memorable. Although I did not have the opportunity to visit the library, I look forward to exploring it when I travel to Hong Kong in the future.

Co-organised by the Asian Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles (ANREV), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM), and Centre for Hospitality and Real Estate Research, the conference sought to facilitate meaningful discussions and professional networking among esteemed academia and industry experts in the real estate sector.

This was followed by a series of thought-provoking paper and panel sessions which covered a wide range of topics, including ESG, proptech (property technology), the dynamics between macroeconomic forces and property pricing, as well as liquidity in the real estate capital market.











Before the event was closed, participants unwound over a cocktail reception, networking with their peers, and exploring potential collaboration opportunities for the future.

CUHK MiM students tackle tourism challenges in Japans Sanin region [#permalink]
FROM CUHK: CUHK MiM students tackle tourism challenges in Japan’s San’in region
The Capstone Project, an integral part of the MiM curriculum, is designed to allow students to apply their classroom knowledge to address real-world business challenges. This year, students were tasked with addressing key issues facing the San’in region’s tourism industry, including inaccessibility and the lack of effective promotion strategies.

Throughout their 11-day journey, the students worked in groups to put together proposals aimed at revitalising local tourism in San’in and attract international visitors, particularly those from Hong Kong and mainland China. They developed a myriad of creative ideas and practical strategies to build a strong brand for San’in, improve the region’s accessibility and product distribution, promote nature activities and enhance cultural and historical tourism experiences.

The trip culminated in two days of engaging presentations delivered by the students to senior executives of the San’in Tourism Organisation. The study trip provided the students with invaluable experience in exploring business challenges in a different cultural context, designing solutions for real business cases and putting their classroom knowledge and teamwork skills into practice.















Beyond the project work, students broadened their understanding of the Japanese business landscape through visits to Mazda, a globally renowned automotive manufacturer, and Kotobuki, a prestigious confectionery brand deeply rooted in local tradition. These experiences provided students with valuable perspectives on Japan’s unique challenges and opportunities present in the region’s diverse industrial sector.
