I am very grateful for what I have, but I will not be settled.
Contributing to the society brightens my life.
I do not think it is a chore, I rather think it is a responsibility.
I enjoy serving the community and I encourage my colleagues to join me.

TOWN PLANNING BOARD – COMMITTEE
In Hong Kong, the city planning is to guide and manage the development and land use. The rationale behind is to promote health, safety, convenience and general welfare of the community, and to create a better organized, more efficient and more desirable living and working environment for the public.
Town Planning Board was established in 1992 and it is responsible for the layout designs of buildings in Hong Kong and the establishment of the district. Hong Kong Planning Department is the executive organization of Town Planning Board. According to the provisions of “Urban Planning Regulations”, the Town Planning Board may ask the Director of Planning Department to prepare plans or blueprints in order to perform the functions prescribed by regulations.
Town Planning Board studies and consults on the planning. The decision will then be executed by the Planning Department. The Board will prepare layouts, diagrams and suggest suitable building types systematically in some regions according to Hong Kong Chief Executive’s instructions.
As a member of the Town Planning Board, I dedicate myself in Hong Kong’s urban planning. Although the tasks are challenging, they are meaningful and significant!

- Through performances, creation, education, research and exchange, we aim to expand the audience base and create a new platform for the contemporary development of the art form.
HONG KONG STRATEGY- VICE PRESIDENT
Hong Kong Strategy is a think tank formed by current and former Central Policy Unit part-time consultants, solely for the long-term development and strategy planning of Hong Kong. It’s like a “students association” which conducts informal communication with the government officials from time to time. The think tank can somehow become the thermometer of the government as it can reflect the general public opinions on different policy issues for the government.
For me, it is a real pleasure to work with this group of elites to make our home a better place to live.
THE BETTER HONG KONG FOUNDATION
It was formed by influential Hong Kong business and community leaders to build greater international understanding between the East and the West by facilitating communications between Hong Kong, China and the global community. The Foundation is a privately-funded, non-profit making organisation and has no political affiliation.
I was born and raised in Hong Kong from grassroots echelon. Thanks to our education system, freedom, fair competition, and the opportunity for upward mobility in Hong Kong, I am able to establish my career and lead a meaningful life. So I definitely support the aim of “Better Hong Kong Foundation”. I would have the opportunity to promote the core values of Hong Kong to the outside world, and to enhance the cooperation of Hong Kong and China with foreign markets.
