The Government announced today (June 25) the Chief Executive's appointment of 26 members to serve on the Harbourfront Commission (HC) for a two-year term commencing on July 1, 2021.

Members who are reappointed include eight public officers, 12 organisation members and four individual members (Mr Mac Chan Ho-ting, Mr Karl Kwok Chi-leung, Ms Angela So Wing-kwan and Mr Tony Tse Wai-chuen). Mr Ivan Ho Man-yiu and Professor Becky Loo Pui-ying, who have been serving on the HC in the capacity of organisation representatives, are appointed as individual members.

Welcoming the appointments and re-appointments, the Secretary for Development, Mr Michael Wong, said, "I am confident that the members appointed, with their wealth of experience and expertise, will provide professional knowledge and valuable advice to the Commission. The Government will continue to work with the HC closely in achieving the shared vision of building an even more attractive, vibrant, accessible and sustainable harbourfront."

Mr Wong added, "I would also like to express my gratitude to the two outgoing members, Mr Hans Joachim Isler and Ms Vivian Lee Ying-shih, for their dedication and contribution in the past six years."
