This is a great opportunity where students can experience the industry from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and they gave us a guided tour on the historical development of Hong Kong’s financial system. The tour also showed us the fascinated development of the new dollar notes. The visitor center of HKMA has interactive games where students can learn about Hong Kong and HKMA in an enjoyable way.

In the afternoon, our group went to the Hong Kong Television Network Limited. The company provides the biggest HK online shopping platform and their corporate communication representatives gave us a talk on the latest trend of online shopping in Hong Kong. After the presentation, we had a tour to see the large logistic operation of how they use sophisticated machines to categorize their goods and deliver it to their customers. Students asked a number of questions on big data and competitive advantage of their company.
