Precious memories as Sing Tao Daily turns 85

Readers shared their memories of reading Sing Tao Daily as the newspaper launched its 85th anniversary "Growing With Hong Kong" exhibition at Olympian City yesterday where precious original manuscripts are displayed.
The two-week "Growing with Hong Kong" exhibition showcasing historic print exhibits and editions of the Chinese-language Sing Tao Daily will run until March 6 at various locations.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Sing Tao News Corporation's co-chief executive officer Cai Jin thanked guests and the public for supporting the newspaper throughout the years.

"Today is a weekend - I'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to support the Sing Tao News Corporation," he said.

"Our marketing colleagues asked me if this event should be more extravagant or kept simple. I decided to keep it simple because this year's theme is 'Growing With Hong Kong'. We hope this event can be more down to earth, and achieve something more concrete."

Cai thanked readers and citizens who attended the exhibition, as well as guests and partners at the event for their support of the Sing Tao News Corporation.

He said he returned from the Greater Bay Area on a business trip Saturday night, adding that Sing Tao has plans to develop its operations there.

"Over the past three years, despite the pandemic, we have already started development plans in the GBA," he said.

Sing Tao will gradually carry out its plans for expansion in the GBA now that the mainland border has reopened, Cai said, adding that he hopes for more communication and exchanges with different sectors to discover new opportunities.

Ivan Tong Kam-piu, editor-in-chief of Sing Tao Daily and its English-language sister publication The Standard, was also at the ceremony, along with general manager of Sing Tao's new media business Ernest Chi Pan-year and Headline Daily editor-in-chief Lau Kwok-yip.

Guests from several companies were also present at the ceremony, including Bank of East Asia, Kowloon Motor Bus Company, Swire, IP&E GBA, Wheelock Properties, Chow Tai Fook, Hong Kong Jockey Club, Yung Kee Restaurant, The Wharf (Holdings) Ltd, Maxim's Group, Housing Society, Seiko, Emperor Group, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Sino Group.

The exhibition features original manuscripts of reports on the 1963 drought, Linked Exchange Rate System established in 1983, and many more. A former heritage conservationist Henry Tse, 65, said he was glad to be able to look back on news reports from before his time.

"I wasn't born yet when the newspaper started in 1938. It's interesting to see the reports here, which were before my time," he said.

He recalled Sing Tao's coverage of the colonial government's implementation of the water supply system in 1963 to cope with the severe drought. "That was really hard. The government could only supply water to the public for four hours once every four days," he said.
