CE expresses sorrow over passing of Dr Tsang Hin-chi
      The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, today (September 20) expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Dr Tsang Hin-chi.

     "Dr Tsang was a successful entrepreneur and committed to contributing to the country. Fully supporting the nation's reform and opening-up, he organised Chinese at home and abroad to set up factories in the Mainland in earlier years. He was a member of the Standing Committee of the 8th to 10th National People's Congress, contributing to the advancement of the country. He was also devoted to charities, donating generously to support the development of education, aerospace, sports, science and technology as well as healthcare in the Mainland. He was one of the four Hong Kong people, among 100 Chinese, awarded the medals of reform pioneers by the country last year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening-up.

     "Dr Tsang had been taking an active part in public services over the years. He was a member of the Basic Law Consultative Committee, Hong Kong Affairs Adviser and a member of the Preparatory Committee for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), making significant contributions to Hong Kong's smooth transition. He was among the first batch of people awarded the Grand Bauhinia Medal in 1997.

     "I am saddened by the passing of Dr Tsang. On behalf of the HKSAR Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family," Mrs Lam said.
