Thank You Address by Dr Carlson Tong Ka-shing, GBS, JP

It is indeed a great honour to be conferred this Honorary Doctorate by EdUHK, particularly as I receive it with two distinguished scholars, who are iconic figures in their respective fields. As an eminent scholar in East Asian studies, Professor Kawata Teiichi has done so much to bring together Chinese and Japanese culture and philosophy. Professor Stephen Raudenbush, meanwhile, is a pioneer in developing methodologies to fight inequality in education. They have played hugely important roles in bridging gaps and fostering understanding between cultures.


Although we come from different backgrounds, one thing we all share is our passion for education. I spent my entire career in accountancy, and I have since devoted a large part of what is supposed to be my retirement to the world of education.
