The first issue of the CUHK Newsletter was published in December 1989. And this, you’re reading, is the 400th issue. Over the years, we have changed from black and white to colour, from A4 size to A3, from separate Chinese and English versions to combined, from once a month, to twice a month. What’s more, the layout and contents have been continuously revised to keep up with the times and meet the needs of our readers. We have certainly come a long way. Thank you very much for being with us. With your continued support, we will strive to go even further. 本刊于暑期休刊，下期（第四零一期）将于8月19日出版。 The CUHK Newsletter will take a break after this issue and resume publication on 19 August.
