Retiring Permanent Secretary for Development on budget allocation

The retiring Permanent Secretary for Development (Works) Mr Wai Chi-sing (韋志成) said that the Government can launch more projects at the same time if budgets can be shared. He said that the authorities should consider proposing the reform when the public is better educated on the subject.

Wai, currently on pre-retirement leave, has worked in the civil service for 38 years. He was the Deputy Secretary for the Environment, Transport and Works in 2004, and then Director of Highways in 2006 before taking over the post in 2010.

Wai’s successor is Mr Hon Chi-keung (韓志強), who has been the Director of Civil Engineering and Development from January 2011 to April 2015.
