Government appoints Antiquities Advisory Board Chairman and members

The Government today (February 10) announced that the Chief Executive has re-appointed Mr Douglas So Cheung-tak as Chairman of the Antiquities Advisory Board (AAB).
The Chief Executive also re-appointed 13 incumbent AAB members and appointed the following six new members to the Board: Professor Selina Chan Ching, Mr Vincent Chan Chun-hung, Professor Cheung Sui-wai, Mr Ivan Fu Chin-shing, Mr Albert Su Yau-on, and Dr Frankie Yeung Wai-shing.
The appointments and re-appointments were made under section 17(1) of the Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance (Cap. 53) and were gazetted today. The term will last until December 31, 2024.
The Secretary for Development, Ms Bernadette Linn, said, "The AAB has been working closely with the Government in heritage conservation in Hong Kong. In particular, it has given invaluable advice on the grading assessment of historic buildings and related conservation proposals, so as to promote local heritage conservation. The new term of the AAB comprises members from different fields and professions. I am confident that this new composition will bring in innovative ideas for the work of the AAB and I look forward to working with the new Board."
Ms Linn expressed gratitude to the six outgoing members for their remarkable service on the AAB.
