I am going to establish the first Financial Training Center in China. It’s the first of this kind that university towns in China are in direct co-operation with a financial company in Hong Kong. That is working in a financial company will become an integral part of their degree course and accounts for credit. Students must pass the working session in Hong Kong in order to get their degree inside the university.
Above is the University Town of Guangzhou and underneath are the University Town of Shenzhen and Zhuhai.Similar cases are existing in other parts of the world but not in China, I will introduce this type and establish a Financial Training Center in the Pearl River Delta with several university towns. They will send students to Hong Kong to work as an intern job. They have to face the cruel world, to face reality. No one will ask them to perform the function of a central bank, treasury department or to work as a fund manager as they learn from their text book, instead they have to start from the very beginning and from the most basic position. That means no one in the company will be lower than they are , but everyone is higher than they are.
So all night market watching and morning meeting will be genuine and not of experimental or mock trading format.
What is it all about ? To ask youngsters to wake up form their day dreams and to face reality. A lot of people just see the successful outcome of finance people and they do not know how hard the process is. Sooner or later you have to taste the bitterness and sweetness thus involved, but as a matter of fact, face it earlier is better than later.
So now even during the summer holidays, I have a lot of intern groups in Hong Kong, I still have to travel around the Pearl River Delta to try to establish this Financial Training Center. We have already been slower than western countries and now is time to chase up.
