     The Government announced today (April 29) that the Chief Executive, in her capacity as the Chancellor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), has accepted the nomination of the CUHK Council and appointed Professor John Chai Yat-chiu as Chairman of the CUHK Council for a term of three years with effect from May 1, 2022.

     The Education Bureau welcomed the appointment and is confident that the CUHK will continue to scale new heights with Professor Chai at the helm. Professor Chai is a prominent community leader who has all along been committed to public service and has made exemplary contributions to the Hong Kong community. He also has a wealth of experience in the higher education sector, including serving as Vice-Chairman of the Council of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and member of the Council of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in the past, as well as member of the CUHK Council currently.

     The Bureau also paid tribute to the outgoing Council Chairman, Dr Norman Leung, who has been a member of the CUHK Council since 2015 and took up the chairmanship in 2016. Under his leadership, the CUHK consolidated its position as one of the world's top universities and continued to excel in both teaching and research with remarkable achievements.
