He remarked that the HKSAR Government has recently released its first Youth Development Blueprint. Concrete actions and measures have been put forward in order to nurture a new generation of young people in Hong Kong with global perspective, an aspiring mind-set and positive thinking, so that they could unleash their full potential in society and contribute to Hong Kong, the country and the world. In line with the policies and initiatives of the country and the HKSAR Government, the VTC will continue to consolidate and strengthen the collaboration and connection with various stakeholders, and deepen the cooperation with cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, so as to enhance the quality of Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET), in addition to broadening learning experiences and development opportunities for students and staff.
