     The Government announced today (September 11) that the Chief Executive has appointed two new individual members and reappointed four incumbent individual members to the Harbourfront Commission (HC) for a term until June 30, 2025.

     The two new individual members are Mr Francis Lam Ka-fai and Mr Wilson Or Chong-shing. The four incumbent members reappointed are Mr Mac Chan Ho-ting, Mr Ivan Ho Man-yiu, Professor Becky Loo Pui-ying and Ms Angela So Wing-kwan.

     In addition, all 12 incumbent organisation members and eight official members have been reappointed to the HC for a term until June 30, 2025.

     Welcoming the above appointments, the Secretary for Development, Ms Bernadette Linn, said, "I am confident that the newly appointed and reappointed members, with their wealth of experience and expertise, will provide professional and valuable advice to the Commission in implementing various harbourfront projects in future. The Government will continue its close partnership with the HC and work together to build an attractive, vibrant, accessible and sustainable harbourfront."

     Ms Linn also expressed gratitude to the two retired members, Mr Karl Kwok Chi-leung and Mr Tony Tse Wai-chuen, for their dedication and invaluable contributions in promoting harbourfront development in the past six years.
