38 teachers commended

Acting Chief Executive Paul Chan presented the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence to 15 teachers at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre today.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung presented the Certificate of Merit to 23 teachers.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chan expressed his heartfelt congratulations to the awarded teachers and thanked them for their dedicated efforts in education.   He encouraged teachers to actively participate in exchange activities with the Mainland and explained that through observation and exchanges, they could explore ways to improve teaching professionalism with outstanding senior teachers on the Mainland.   They can also use these opportunities to strengthen their understanding of the country’s politics, economy, society, history and culture, and then share their knowledge gained with colleagues and students, Mr Chan added.   There was a total of 121 and 104 nominations for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 awards.  

HK, Guangdong measure welcomed

The Government welcomed an announcement by Guangdong on the recruitment of Hong Kong Chinese medicine practitioners (CMPs) by public healthcare institutions in the Mainland cities of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.   The Traditional Chinese Medicine Bureau of Guangdong Province today announced that Hong Kong CMPs will be recruited within 2021, on contract terms, by selected pilot sites of public Chinese medicine healthcare institutions in Guangzhou and Shenzhen.   The recruitment procedures, as well as terms and conditions of employment, will be determined by the relevant healthcare institutions. The authorities will take into account the implementation situation when considering whether the scope of the pilot sites should be expanded.   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government welcomes the measure and expressed gratitude to the relevant authorities of the central government and the province for their staunch support to the development of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong.   “The measure enables Hong Kong CMPs to further their practice within the national healthcare system, thereby promoting exchanges in Chinese medicine and providing Hong Kong CMPs, in particular the younger generation, with the opportunity to pursue development in the bay area."   Under Hong Kong’s Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement with the Mainland and relevant supplementary agreements, a series of policies has been in place to enable Hong Kong CMPs to practise Chinese medicine and establish healthcare institutions in the Mainland, Prof Chan added.   “The latest arrangement allows Hong Kong CMPs to practise in Mainland public healthcare institutions, thereby expanding their scope for development.”
