Visit to Hong Kong Monetary Authority

 

Date: 2017/04/10

 

In the afternoon of 10 April 2017, a total of 21 students from Diploma of Foundation Studies visited the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA). A representative from HKMA greeted us and gave us detailed, enthusiastic and vivid explanations throughout the journey. It was evidenced by students’ attentiveness and initiatives in raising a lot of questions. The representative explained the work of HKMA, tracing the development of money and banking in Hong Kong. He also showed examples of coins and notes used over the years. Students were particularly interested in the part of distinguishing genuine banknotes from fake ones. The knowledge was particularly useful since most of us give and receive a lot of cash every day. All in all, the trip was considered very successful since students reflected that they would very much welcome similar arrangement in future.
