Government appoints self-recommended youth members to Committee on Reduction of Salt and Sugar in Food

     The Government announced today (November 12) the appointment of two members to the Committee on Reduction of Salt and Sugar in Food (CRSS) through the Member Self-recommendation Scheme for Youth (MSSY) from November 15, 2021, to March 14, 2024.
     The two newly appointed members are Ms Christa Cheung Shuk-fung and Mr William Hung Wai-lai. Ms Cheung is a registered social worker. She works as a supervisor in a local youth service organisation and is engaged in research and corporate communications. Mr Hung is currently working on digital marketing for an online dining platform. 
     The CRSS was established in March 2015 to steer the direction and co-ordinate the work of reducing salt and sugar intake by the local population, and formulate and oversee the implementation and evaluation of the Action Plans for Salt and Sugar Reduction in Food in Hong Kong. Furthermore, the Government regularly recruits young persons aged between 18 and 35 who are eager to serve the community to join the Government's advisory committees through the MSSY with a view to providing more opportunities for young people to participate in policy discussion.
