     The citations of the award recipients of the 2021 Honours List are provided in the Appendix.
     The award recipients this year come from different walks of life with diverse backgrounds. They have made significant contribution to Hong Kong in different areas, benefiting various sectors of the community, including public and community service, medical and public health, legal, charity and philanthropy, finance, trade and industry, research and technology, education, culture, arts, sports, conservation, youth affairs, women's affairs, ethnic harmony, and labour and welfare.
     A government spokesman pointed out that as in the 2020 exercise, the Government has accorded special recognition to those involved in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic and related work in the past year. This is reflected in the exceptionally large 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.
     "The Chief Executive is grateful to all awardees for their contribution to Hong Kong and plans to host the presentation ceremony for the awards at Government House in November. The exact timing and arrangement will take into account the social distancing measures then in force," the spokesman added.
