She served in that position until June 30, 2017.
     "Ms Hui had been dedicated to serving the Hong Kong community for years. In her tenure as the Under Secretary for Home Affairs, she worked in the promotion of civic education, district and community relations, culture, recreation and sport. She was sincere, passionate about arts and culture and attached importance to communication with the industry, earning the respect of those who had worked with her both inside or outside the Government. After leaving the Government, she continued to serve the community and was appointed as a board member of the Hong Kong Palace Museum Limited in March this year.
