     The Government announced today (September 3) that the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, has re-appointed Mr Henry Tang Ying-yen as the Chairman of the Board of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) for another term of two years with effect from October 1, 2021. 
     "The West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) has seen remarkable progress in the past two years and is establishing itself as a new cultural landmark of Hong Kong. In addition to the Xiqu Centre, Freespace and the Art Park, the two world-class museums in WKCD, the M+ Museum and Hong Kong Palace Museum, are set to open in the near future. I have every confidence that under Mr Tang's capable leadership, the WKCD will be playing a key part in Hong Kong's development as a hub for arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world, a goal set out in the National 14th Five-Year Plan," Mrs Lam said.
     The above appointment is also published in the Government Gazette today.
     Under the WKCDA Ordinance (Cap. 601), the Board is the governing and executive body of WKCDA. It is responsible for the planning, development, operation and maintenance of the arts and cultural facilities and related facilities in the West Kowloon Cultural District.
