ExCo Non-official Members thank civil servants for serving community during passage of super typhoon
The following is issued on behalf of the Executive Council Secretariat:
     The Non-official Members of the Executive Council (ExCo) today (September 19) commended members of the civil service for their commitment and sense of duty during and after the passage of Super Typhoon Mangkhut, showing no fear in the face of difficulties and risks in serving the public and protecting people's lives and property.
     The Convenor of the ExCo Non-official Members, Mr Bernard Chan, said, "Through the wholehearted and co-ordinated efforts of civil servants from different departments, as well as organisations and contractors which provide public services, in carrying out comprehensive precautionary, emergency and recovery work, we were able to weather the storm with minimum adverse impact on Hong Kong. The city's normal operations and people's daily lives have resumed very quickly. In addition, we are glad to learn that members of the public have also been helping to restore our community on their own accord.
     "On behalf of all ExCo Non-official Members, I would like to thank all who have been involved for their contributions and hard work, and I wish those who were injured during the typhoon a speedy recovery."
