Post-office employment and appointments for former politically appointed officials and former officials under special appointment
     The Advisory Committee on Post-office Employment for Former Chief Executives and Politically Appointed Officials has advised on the proposed employment of Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, former Secretary for Transport and Housing, and the proposed acceptance by Ms Florence Hui, former Under Secretary for Home Affairs, of appointments after their departure from the Government on July 1, 2017. Furthermore, the Government has accepted the advice of the Advisory Committee on the applications for post-office work from Mr Lee Tak-keung and Dr Wong Chack-kie, former Full-time Members of the Central Policy Unit, and approved the applications.

     The Advisory Committee considers that, subject to the observance of certain restrictions it has advised, Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung's proposed employment and Ms Florence Hui's acceptance of the proposed appointments would not give rise to any potential conflict of interest. The Advisory Committee also does not anticipate adverse public reaction or public perception to arise from the proposed employment and appointments.
       Mr Lee Tak-keung and Dr Wong Chack-kie are former officials under special appointment who left the Government on July 1, 2017, upon the expiry of their employment contracts. After considering their applications for post-office work, the Advisory Committee has advised that they may take up the proposed work subject to certain restrictions. The Government has accepted the Advisory Committee's advice and approved the post-office work applications from Mr Lee and Dr Wong subject to those restrictions.

     The Advisory Committee considers and advises on the post-office employment or appointment for former politically appointed officials and officials under special appointment. In considering each case, the Advisory Committee has regard to the information provided by the former politically appointed official or former official under special appointment concerned, the assessments by relevant government bureaux or offices, and the criteria for advice as stipulated in the guidance notes on post-office employment for politically appointed officials or officials under special appointment as applicable.

     Details of the above-mentioned cases are available at the Advisory Committee's website (www.ceo.gov.hk/poo/eng/index.htm).

     The membership of the Advisory Committee is as follows:
 Professor Liu Pak-wai (Chairman) 
 Ms Elaine Lo Yuen-man
 Ms Susanna Chiu Lai-kuen
 Mr Thomas Brian Stevenson
