[ News ]  Moscow International Education Fair 2017 - 2017-04-12
In the recent Policy Address issued, the Hong Kong Government indicated its full support in the Belt and Road initiative to create more exchange opportunities for young people and boost the economic development of the region.  To explore more exchange opportunities for our staff and students in Russia, one of the Belt and Road countries, VTC participated the Moscow International Education Fair 2017 (the Fair) at VDNH, Moscow during 12-15 April 2017.

International Education Fair

Organised by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, the Fair had been held since 2014.  It was not only an open forum of sharing experience and practices by the Russian and international educational institutions, but also the Russian’s largest exhibition of new educational services and innovative technologies.  Tens of thousands of teachers, parents and students visited the Fair to understand the available education opportunities in Russia and also around the globe.

VTC’s Participation

VTC, being the only exhibitor from Hong Kong in the Fair, provided the latest information of educational opportunities for Russian students and introduced the latest development of vocational and professional education and training in Hong Kong.  Opportunities of staff and student exchanges were also explored and discussed with potential partners in the Russian Federation.  This was a good start to get better mutual understanding between the two regions.

Ms Heidi Fung, Director of International Development Office introduces VTC and its programmes to the teachers, parents and students participated.

Opportunities of exchanges and collaborations are discussed with Russian institutions.

Parents and students are keen to get more information about studying in Hong Kong.
