Access to the room:
The doors of the institute will be locked at 5pm. I will be waiting by the front doors, between 5.45 and 5.55, to grant you access. If you need to enter later on, a security guard should be on duty. Ask for the Dorothy Lam Boardroom. (Enter the building and turn right. The boardroom is the second room on your left on the ground floor - there are signs.)

Drinks/dinner:
We will be going for drinks/dinner after the meeting to allow further discussion, in a nearby place.
