Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa visited Lingnan University where he toured the campus and talked to staff and students. Speaking to student representatives, Mr Tung stressed the importance of both English and Chinese, the two major languages used on the Internet. 'In order to make the best use of the Internet to keep up with the latest technology and information, users must have a good knowledge of these two languages,' he said. Mr Tung was greeted by the president of the university, Professor Edward Chen Kwan-yiu, vice- president Professor Nyaw Mee-kau and Professor Chan Tsang-sing and Professor Barton Starr, associate vice-presidents and academic deans for Business Studies and for Humanities and Social Sciences, respectively. Mr Tung said that university education should train students to think independently. He said he identified with Lingnan University's mission statement, which is 'to seek to provide students with an education in the liberal arts tradition from both East and West. It takes a whole-person approach to education which enables its students to think, judge, care and, ultimately, act responsibly in the changing circumstances of Hong Kong, the region and the world'. The Chief Executive visited the Central Plaza, where he watched both staff and students reciting poetry, writing Chinese calligraphy and solving riddles. At the Student Services Centre, he noted that Lingnan students had taken part in a wide range of activities and social services to serve residents in the northwestern New Territories.
