Foreword

The Analects of Confucius taught that ‘At forty, I had no delusions.’ In 2017, the HKEAA has turned forty. To celebrate the growth and achievements of the HKEAA in the past four decades, we are organising various activities to introduce the history, services and achievements of the Authority in order to share with you the work of the HKEAA. I take pride in our superb team for their concerted efforts and professionalism that has transformed HKEAA into a renowned examination authority over the years.

With foresight, we no longer confine our service to the transfer of skills and technology necessary in arranging examinations and in managing day-to-day operations. Indeed, as a world-class examinations and assessment services provider, we are as committed as ever to fostering students’ knowledge and creativity as well as committing to corporate social responsibilities through ‘Assessment for Learning’, and in turn form a robust and versatile workforce that helps sustain Hong Kong’s competitiveness in a globalised economy.

As always, we have been working closely with all the stakeholders in the education community, we value your views in helping us to explore new and better ways to realise our mission to be a world-renowned and well-trusted examination and assessment services provider. Our team will continue to serve and provide valid, reliable and equitable examinations and assessment services to the community.

Please join me in congratulating the HKEAA on its 40th anniversary and in wishing the Authority every success in scaling new heights in the coming decades.
