HE Ping thanked the CHEN Xiaoyue fund committee on behalf of the school for its continuous support. Since its establishment in 2010, the scholarship has benefited more than 100 students to promote their education and ability. In the future, the scholarship will expand to include students from outside the school and support those with outstanding abilities in academic research. HE said he hoped students appreciate the honor of receiving the scholarship and consider it a responsibility to care for others and give back to society.

HUANG Ying spoke on behalf of Professor CHEN's students. She said CHEN recognized the trend of internationalization in accounting early enough to integrate internationalized instruction into the curriculum's design. Many of his students went on to take roles in government, enterprises and financial institutions, and their work promoted China's economic development. HUANG said she hoped today's students would face the country's changes with a positive and open mind, and achieve even more in the future.

She said the scholarship is not only a recognition but also a motivation for self-improvement and innovation. "CHEN, who 'looked at the world from China, and sought truth and excellence,' taught us through his experiences as a scholar and a person," she said. LUO said she hoped students will carry on his spirit of pursuing truth and excellence on their own paths in life.
