Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor received a distinguished guest in Bai Chunli, president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, at Government House on Thursday where they discussed further cooperation between the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the academy in science and technology research and development. They also signed a memorandum of understanding on the establishment of research institutions affiliated to CAS in the HKSAR. It's no doubt another significant step toward greater prominence for Hong Kong on the nation's map of sci-tech development.
