The members of the Board come from a wide spectrum of professions and sectors in the community with extensive experience and expertise. On behalf of the URA Board, I would like to extend our warmest welcome to the newly-appointed and the re-appointed members. We look forward to working with fellow members of the Board and URA colleagues to push forward urban renewal through a holistic and forward-looking planning approach to enhance the quality of living, particularly for those in older districts of Hong Kong.”
Mr Chow also expressed gratitude to the retiring non-official non-executive directors, namely the Honourable Judy Chan Ka-pui, Mr Roger Luk Koon-hoo, Mrs Cecilia Wong Ng Kit-wah and Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam, whose term of office will expire on 30 April 2022, for their active participation and valuable counsel to the work of the URA in the past.
