Advisory body to CE established

March 17, 2023

The Government announced today the establishment of the Chief Executive’s Council of Advisers.


Chaired by the Chief Executive and comprising 34 members, with key government officials' participation, the council is a high-level advisory body to advise the Chief Executive on Hong Kong’s strategic development, leveraging on opportunities from national and global developments.


The first term will take effect immediately and end on June 30, 2025.


The Government said the council's formation is particularly timely and crucial, as the city is now on the path to resume normalcy after the pandemic, seeking to rekindle momentum to return to the international stage as the most effective gateway between the world and the country.


With its unique advantages and strengths under the "one country, two systems" principle and its strong fundamentals, the Government will spare no effort in advancing Hong Kong's economic development and prosperity, tapping the enormous business potential arising from innovation and technology, and its further integration into the national development as well as deepening regional and global collaborations.


Welcoming the advisers on board, Chief Executive John Lee said they are all distinguished and eminent leaders in their respective fields and some of them are internationally renowned scholars or experts.


“They will certainly be in the best position to provide me with valuable insights and wise counsel to the benefit of the long-term strategic development of Hong Kong.”


He added that the council will be organised along three broad streams to facilitate more focused and in-depth dialogues, involving economic advancement and sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship as well as regional and global collaborations.


“I do look forward to working closely with them in the coming years.”
