The citations of the award recipients of the 2020 Honours List are provided in the Appendix.
The award recipients this year are from different walks of life with diverse backgrounds. They have made significant contributions to Hong Kong in different areas, benefiting various sectors of the community, including public and community service, medical and public health, charity and philanthropy, finance, trade and industry, research and technology, education, culture, arts, sports, youth affairs, women's affairs, ethnic harmony, and labour and welfare.
A government spokesman pointed out that the number of award recipients in the two categories of the Chief Executive's Commendation for Community Service and the Chief Executive's Commendation for Government/Public Service this year is exceptionally large in order to give recognition to meritorious performance by individuals involved in the handling of social incidents and the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in the past year.
"The Chief Executive is grateful to all awardees for their contributions to Hong Kong and plans to host the presentation ceremony for the awards at Government House within this year. The exact timing and arrangement will have to take into account the social distancing measures in force," the spokesman added.
Announcement of next year's Honours List will return to be made on July 1.
