Resignation of SCS

     The former Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Paul Tang, today (July 21) made the following statement on his resignation:

     "I am honoured to have served as the Secretary for the Civil Service for the past three years. I would like to thank the Chief Executive, colleagues in the Government, in particular colleagues in the Civil Service Bureau, Members of the Executive Council, Legislative Council and District Councils, friends in the media as well as other stakeholders for the support and advice offered to me during this period.

     "While I have enjoyed my work, I think it is an opportune time for me to step down due to unforeseeable family circumstances which require me to spend more time with my family members, and having regard to key civil service initiatives like the Pay Level Survey 2013, the Pay Trend Survey 2015 and extension of the service of civil servants either completed or well on the way.

     "I am sure my successor Mr Clement Cheung would be able to lead CSB to new heights and that colleagues would support him, just as they have done so for me.

     "If the suitable opportunity comes along in the future, I am prepared to serve the community in another capacity."
