11 Mar 2019

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is deeply saddened to learn that alumnus Mr. Tsang Shing-ngai Victor died in yesterday’s air crash in Ethiopia. The University has contacted his family to express its condolences, and will try its best to provide them with appropriate assistance. 

Mr. Tsang graduated from the Faculty of Business Administration at CUHK.  He worked for non-profit organisations for many years, making remarkable contributions to society. He was currently working in the United Nations Office in Kenya promoting environmental protection and sustainable development. Although he lived overseas for many years, he still cared about his alma mater’s affairs. He returned to Hong Kong as a guest lecturer for the University’s Global Studies Programme, and shared his views on sustainable development with students. He hoped to increase the level of concern for the environment and create a better future for the next generation.  Mr. Tsang’s enthusiasm for promoting sustainable development was truly admirable.
