'I am very excited to be the first Chair of the Hong Kong Foundation and, along with the Board, to be in a position to shape how the Foundation can help strengthen Birmingham’s presence in Hong Kong. We created the Foundation to bring together Hong Kong’s almost 3,000 strong alumni community and begin a bold new chapter in the long and special relationship between the University of Birmingham and our great city.'
