Progress Update
Appointment of Consultation Panel members  
Professor John Leong Chi-yan, President of the Open University of Hong Kong, was appointed new Chairman of the Consultation Panel last month following the retirement of Professor Stephen Cheung Yan-leung who had led the panel since 2009. All existing members have been re-appointed to the Panel, except for Mr Victor Lo, for a period of one year.

Welcoming the new appointment, Mrs Carrie Lam, Chairman of WKCDA Board, said Professor John Leong, with his wealth of experience in public and community services, would offer new insights and advice to the Consultation Panel, which would serve as a bridge between the public and WKCDA in the next phase of the West Kowloon Cultural District development. Mrs Lam also expressed gratitude to Professor Cheung, for his excellent leadership, and the incumbent members and retired member, Dr Victor Lo, for their active participation and support to the work of the Consultation Panel.
