Sing Tao launches news exhibition on 25th anniversary of HK handover
A news exhibition organized by Sing Tao News Group, which features the changes that Hong Kong has seen over the past 25 years, kicks in at Central on Sunday.
The launching ceremony of the exhibition was held at 1/F STEAM Hub, Central Market. The exhibition will last for three weeks.
It is the first of the activities organized by the Group to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the HKSAR. And to bring back the collective memory of Hong Kong since 1997 for the citizens.
The ceremony was attended by Under Secretary for Development Liu Chun-san, Vice-Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Sing Tao News Corp Kwok Hiu-ting, Executive Director and Co-CEO of Sing Tao News Corp Cai Jin, and Chief Financial Officer Zheng Wei, Urban Renewal Authority (URA) managing director Wai Chi-sing, URA Director of Property and Land Bruchi Nam Chi-kwong, and Hong Kong Trade Development Council Deputy Executive Director Patrick Lau Hui-ping.
The Group also set up an old newspaper stall in front of the brick wall of Legacy Hall on the first floor, where Sing Tao's publications in the past 85 years were displayed for the public to take pictures of.
Cai pointed out that the original copy of Sing Tao Daily that was published on July 1, 1997 will be displayed in the showcase at the venue. He hopes that on the special day of the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's handover, the precious memories of 25 years ago will be revived for the citizens.
In addition, a metaverse exhibition is also held to cover the special events over the 25 years of establishment of HKSAR and also the new media business development of Sing Tao Group.
