Professor Sung said at the opening ceremony, ‘Only a few international academic institutions have set up Taiwan studies or research centres, namely the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, University of California at Santa Barbara and San Diego, Tokyo University and the European Research Centre on Contemporary Taiwan at Tübingen University. The Taiwan Research Centre at CUHK will join these organizations to promote Taiwan studies and to foster collaboration with institutions in Taiwan for academic and cultural cooperation.’
