Post-office employment for Mr Norman Chan

     The Advisory Committee on Post-office Employment for Former Chief Executives and Politically Appointed Officials received a request for advice from Mr Norman Chan, Director of the Chief Executive's Office, who has been offered appointment as the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA).

     The Advisory Committee was satisfied that Mr Chan's appointment as the Chief Executive of the HKMA would not give rise to any conflict of interest, nor would it adversely affect or compromise the Government's performance. The Advisory Committee did not anticipate negative public perception arising from the appointment. The question of whether HKMA would gain an unfair advantage over its competitors was not applicable.  

     Within one year after stepping down from office, former politically appointed officials are required to seek the advice of a committee appointed by the Chief Executive before commencing any employment. The membership of the Advisory Committee is as follows:

Mr Moses Cheng Mo-chi (Chairman)
Professor Lee Chack-fan
Dr Norman Leung Nai-pang
Dr Elizabeth Shing Shiu-ching
Mr Tim Lui Tim-leung
