     Accompanying the Chief Executive on the visit will be the Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan; the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung; the Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, Professor K C Chan; the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Gregory So; and the Commissioner for Belt and Road, Miss Yvonne Choi.

     Mr Leung will leave for Beijing at noon on May 13 and depart for Hong Kong after the closing of the Forum on May 15. During Mr Leung's absence, the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, will be the Acting Chief Executive.
