New Year catch up for Hong Kong alumni
20 January 2017

Our Hong Kong alumni started 2017 by meeting up with each other to exchange news.

Some of our alumni, through their connection to NTU have become firm friends, and in this first meeting of the year they caught up with each other’s news but also welcomed some first-time attendees for networking. 

Organiser and Alumni Ambassador Chris Tang (Legal Practice Course 1997) said: “The enthusiasm for this event was really high. One alumnus even made the two hour round trip from his home in the New Territories, and it was great to welcome alumni who had never been to one of our events before. We've all benefited so much from making new business connections and some new friends.”
