ANOTHER milestone has been laid in the history of the Open Learning Institute (OLI) with the signing of a contract for the construction of its new campus. OLI director Professor Gajaraj Dhanarajan thanked the Government and the various charitable organisations for providing the necessary funding for the construction of the twin-tower premises. The Government granted the institute $150 million for the project and the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club donated $71 million to meet the balance, with the latter contributing a further sum of $860,000 to furnish a Disabled Students Resources Centre at the new campus. OLI council chairman Peter Wong also extended his gratitude to other donors including the Lee Hysan Foundation, the Wei Lun Foundation and the Wu Jieh Yee Charitable Foundation. Mr Wong and OLI deputy chairman Carlos Cheung were joined by Dickson Construction Company chairman Ho Kee-kung at the contract signing ceremony. The building, a twin tower structure resting on a two-storey podium, comprises 12 floors.
