In appreciation of the donor’s beneficence, a cheque presentation ceremony was held on 17 August. Officiating at the ceremony were Mr John Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Lippo China Resources Limited; Dr David Ng, Director of Lippo Asia Limited; Mr Wing Chan, Executive Vice President, Corporate Finance and Development of the Lippo Group; and Professor Alexander Wai, President and Vice-Chancellor of HKBU.

At the ceremony, Professor Wai expressed his deep gratitude to Dr Mochtar Riady and Dr Stephen Riady, Honorary Chairman and President of the Lippo Group respectively, for their unswerving support of HKBU, and in particular the School of Chinese Medicine over the years. He believes that with the Lippo Group’s substantial experience in healthcare business operation, its support can benefit the University’s endeavours in Chinese medicine education, research and clinical services development, including its operation of the Chinese Medicine Hospital in future.
