Post-office appointments for Ms Julia Leung

     The Advisory Committee on Post-office Employment for Former Chief Executives and Politically Appointed Officials has advised the Government on the proposed appointments of former Under Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Ms Julia Leung after leaving the Government on January 1. Ms Leung has proposed to accept appointment as Fellow of the Harvard University Asia Center. She has also proposed to accept appointment as Senior Advisor of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) and to take up a report assignment commissioned by the OMFIF.
