It gives me great pleasure to congratulate Lingnan University on the 50th anniversary of its re-establishment in Hong Kong.

Over the past five decades, Lingnan University has grown into an internationally recognised liberal  arts  college  while staying true to its commitment  to small-class  teaching.  It has inspired and nurtured many by providing a favourable environment for pursuing academic excellence and developing a global outlook.

Lingnan has also taken every opportunity  to  enhance its teaching and academic research in recent years, attaining remarkable achievements particularly in humanities, arts and social sciences disciplines. I am most confident that the perseverance and dedication of Lingnanians  will be instrumental in enabling Lingnan to rise as one of Asia's top universities.

I share the lofty spirit embodied in Lingnan's motto "Education for Service" - a profound belief of serving the community through nurturing our youth. In a highly globalised, interconnected world, we need versatile leaders with a global perspective to help sustain Hong Kong's competitive edge, and Lingnan is in a unique position to supply talent of such extraordinary calibre.

I wish Lingnan all the best in its future endeavours and may the next 50 years be as successful  as the last.
