According to President Hwung, outstanding means not only one’s significant performance in the profession but also the continuous efforts in the course of one’s life which have benefited a lot of people, which is the real definition of outstanding.

President Hwung hailed the outstanding achievement of the awardees and expected them to contribute their work and talents to the society for the social good and more people will benefit from their fulfillment.

Minister Hong-Yuan Lee expressed his special thanks to NCKU and he said that when he studied at NCKU in the 60s, the scale of NCKU is rather small. Even though the situation of society and education is quite tough at that time, NCKU still had cultivated many talents.

He said, NCKU’s spirit of “pristine practicality” he acquired when he studied at NCKU had helped him to deal with the problems ahead of him in life and until now, the spirit still comes in handy when he encountered any difficulties.

Minister Lee expected that he wouldn’t be the last engineer to serve as Minister of the Ministry of the Interior of the Executive Yuan and he revealed that his current mission includes the national spatial planning and national geographic information system planning.
