Former Political Assistant to Secretary for the Environment, HKSAR Government

I was appointed for Political Assistant to serve the Secretary for the Environment, (Mr. Wong Kam Sing, GBS, JP) for 10 years from 2013 to 2022.  During my almost ten-year service in the government, I involved to different extent in the preparation and drafting of various landmark environmental blueprints (policy plans) for Hong Kong - climate change, air quality, resource management, including the latest Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050.

After two terms of appointment, I left government and started my new career journey at a private sector of construction industry as Sustainability Director.  From political science (my undergraduate field) to environmental science, it does not only enhance my academic knowledge, but also expand my personal network which is essential to my career development.  Knowledge and people can open your mind and brighten your future.
