ITB ramps up hiring in wake of funding approval

The Government announced the appointment of David Chung Wai-keung (鍾偉強) and Sandra Leung Shuk-bo (梁淑寶) as Undersecretary and Political Assistant, respectively, to the Innovation and Technology Bureau with effect from March 1 and February 11 respectively, more than one month after Nicholas Yang was tagged to lead the new bureau.

Mr Chung is a former colleague of Mr Yang; the two worked together at Cyberport for six years. Mr Chung was the Chief Technology Officer responsible for IT infrastructure, industry collaboration and incubation platforms for IT entrepreneurs. He was also a winner of the “China Top 5 CIO Award” in 2013.

While Chung may be a well-respected figure in the industry, Leung’s name is lesser known even to the likes of IT lawmaker Charles Mok.

Leung is a member of the Our Hong Kong Foundation set up by former CE Tung Chee-hwa and is responsible for the group’s IT-related issues. She also worked for TechTure, a digital agency firm fully owned by a former DAB District Councillor. If this is not enough, a subsidiary company of TechTure was tasked to develop the webpage of Speak Out HK, a pro-establishment online media platform founded by pro-CY Leung think tank Hong Kong United Foundation.

The Government appointed Robert Lee Wai-wang (李惟宏), Natalia Seng Sze Ka-mee (沈施加美) and Cynthia Tang Yuen-shun (鄧宛舜) to the Standing Committee on Company Law Reform.

New chairman for Construction Industry Council announced

Chan Ka-kui (陳家駒) was named the new chairman of Construction Industry Council for a two-year term from February 1, 2016 to January 31, 2018. Not to be confused with the Jackie Chan Police Story character, this is definitely the construction guy.

He was awarded the JP title in 1992 and Bronze Bauhinia Star in 1998.
