Mr. Ao, a student from the Master's degree program in Public Administration participated in the seminar “Governance System of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin”. Through the seminar, the student gained a deeper understanding of the “Four-Sharing” system of “Mutual Discussion, Joint Construction, Joint Administration and Shared Benefits” proposed in the “Master Plan of the Development of the Guangdong-Macao Intensive Cooperation Zone in Hengqin” under the coordinated leadership of the central government. The student acquired knowledge about the development opportunities presented by the plan and enhanced skills through case study analysis, providing valuable resources and positive influence to the student's career planning.
