     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, today (June 9) expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Dr Philip Wong.

     "Dr Wong had actively taken part in public and community service for a long period of time.  In his various public service roles,  he served as an effective communication link between the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, Hong Kong and the Government with distinguished performance. He was a member of the former Legislative Council (LegCo), the Provisional LegCo and the LegCo of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), witnessing the return of Hong Kong to the motherland. He also served as a Hong Kong deputy to the National People's Congress to participate in national affairs, contributing to the development of the country. He was awarded the Gold Bauhinia Star in 2003. 

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