A delegation from the History Division of the National Science Council, Taiwan, paid an official visit to the Department of History on November 17, 2006. The Delegation was headed by Prof. Jo-shui Chen (National Taiwan University), and five members included Prof. Li-yueh Lin (National Taiwan Normal University), Prof. Chi-Hua Tang (National Chung Hsing University), Prof. Huai-chen Kan (National Taiwan University), Prof. Te-lan Chu (Academia Sinica) and Prof. Shao-li Lu (National Chengchi University). The Delegation held a formal meeting with faculties of the Department of History, followed by some informal conversation with the postgraduate students and a visit to the Special Collections & Archives of the Hong Kong Baptist University Library.

The main purpose of the visit was to explore possibilities of developing graduate student exchange programmes and establishing different forms of academic interflow. Both parties found the meeting fruitful and looked forward to the realization of graduate exchange.

In the evening, the Department of History hosted a welcoming dinner. Apart from the Department colleagues and members of the Delegation, we were very much honored by the presence of 16 historians from different universities of Hong Kong, whose company has more or less turned the activity into a gathering of local historians with the Delegation. During the banquet, there were lots of conversations and exchange of ideas among members from different institutions. Below is a list of scholars from other universities who participated in the banquet.
