Global Perspectives seminar at Shiu Pong College: Legitimacy of Co-location Joint Checkpoint Scheme
On April 15, 2020, Dr. Henry Ho of the Faculty of Law was invited to deliver a seminar talk on “Legitimacy of Co-location Joint Checkpoint Scheme”. This is an online seminar and attracted more than 100 participants.
Dr. Ho introduced Hong Kong’s co-location joint checkpoint scheme and the controversy surrounding the issue. Comments from different parties, including the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, Hong Kong Bar Association, Mr. Li Fei (Chairman of the Basic Law Committee), Mr. Shieh Wing-tai (senior counsel), etc. were also introduced in the seminar. Dr. Ho also talked about the border control in different countries, such as Woodlands Train Checkpoint crossing between Singapore and Malaysia and the “Allegro” train crossing between Finland and Russia, inspiring participants to think about the issue from diverse perspectives. Many students said that the seminar was rich in content and thought-provoking, and that they gained a lot from it.
Aiming to further enhance students’ global competiveness and expand their horizons, SPC has organized a seminar-talk series on a vast range of topics. Topic includes: the licit and illicit nature of parallel trading.
