Y o u r Excellency, Ladies an d Ge n t l eme n: First, to all of y ou of the graduating class, I w o u ld like to extend my heartiest congratulations for your achievements, and to wish y ou the best of luck in the years ahead. T h i s year, for the first time, we have instituted a system of awarding marks of distinction and it is a great pleasure to me to note that 46 of you have achieved Bachelor Degrees cum laude. Y ou w i ll be even more pleased to k n ow that the H o n g K o n g Go v e r nme nt has j u st decided to equate our cum laude and magna cum laude degrees w i t h second and first honours degrees respectively of all other Commonwealth Universities for the purposes of emp l o yme nt in the Public Service. T h i s is the t h i rd Congregation of T h e Chinese Un i v e r s i ty for the awarding of degrees. I t also marks the Un i v e r s i t y 's t h i rd anniversary, and I am pleased to report that we are s h ow i ng signs of ma t u r i ty and development that seem to me to be rather precocious
