HKBU CONFERS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS HONORARY PROFESSORSHIP ON MR. JAMES TSIEN

The School of Business conferred on Mr. James Tsien an Honorary Professorship on 6 Oct.

In the acceptance speech, Mr. Tsien shared with the attendees how he gauged Hong Kong’s competitiveness. He cited the case of the local container ports to illustrate key factors conducive to Hong Kong’s infrastructural development. Mr. Tsien pointed out that to stay competitive in the region and maintain our global ranking, our container trade really needs more land to facilitate transshipment and local cargo handling. He suggested that the Government can consider giving incentives, in the form of land subsidies and tax credits, to container port operators.

Graduated from the School of Business in 1973, Mr. Tsien is dedicated to supporting the University and the School’s ongoing development.
