The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program was launched in 2017 by the Asia Global Institute (AGI) at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). The program is an interdisciplinary global leadership development initiative for mid-career professionals with a strong interest and track record in public policy.

The incoming cohort of 12 AsiaGlobal Fellows are outstanding professionals and they come from different parts of the world, including neighboring Asian countries, Europe, Africa and the Americas. This group of diverse individuals have leadership backgrounds and are influencers in government, civil society, and business. The AsiaGlobal Fellows will be primarily based at HKU from August 20 to November 16, 2018.

During the 13-week residential program, our seasoned fellows will have the opportunity to participate in lectures by academics, senior government officials and business leaders, skill-training workshops, and study trips to other cities in China. Our AsiaGlobal Fellows are also fully immersed in the AsiaGlobal community.

The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program is directed and administered by the Asia Global Institute, a multidisciplinary research institute at the University. AGI’s mission is to generate and disseminate innovative thinking and policy-relevant, practical research on global issues from Asian perspectives. It aims to inform global and national policy and actions towards a prosperous and sustainable future for all.

The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program is carried out under the overall supervision of Professor Zhiwu Chen, Victor and William Fung Professor in Economics and Director of AGI at HKU. The Program Director is Mr K C Kwok, Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty & Business and Economics at HKU, and formerly Government Economist of the Hong Kong SAR Government.
