Accompanied by Acting Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office New York (HKETONY) Paul Cheung, Secretary Yeung met with senior management from the University of Miami to provide updates on the implementation of the New Academic Structure in Hong Kong. He also discussed opportunities for collaboration between the institution and universities in Hong Kong.

Secretary Yeung also met with a Chinese University of Hong Kong student, who was on an exchange program at the University of Miami to learn about the life of Hong Kong exchange students in the U.S.

While in Miami, Mr. Yeung met with the board members from the Hong Kong Association of Florida and representatives of the academia to update them on the latest educational developments in Hong Kong. Representatives of Miami-Dade College, the University of Miami and Barry University attended the lunch.

The Going Global conference is one of the most prestigious forums for global leaders of international education to discuss current issues. With the theme of "Inclusion, Innovation & Impact," the 2014 conference was attended by more than 1,000 delegates, 250 speakers and 50 exhibitors from higher and continuing education sectors around the world.
