Yeung Tak-keung will head the National Games Coordination Office on October 16.

Yeung Tak-keung will take up the appointment as Head of the National Games Coordination Office under the Culture, Sports & Tourism Bureau (CSTB) starting October 16, the Government announced today.


Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung welcomed the appointment following an open recruitment exercise.


The sports chief said: “Previously serving as the Commissioner for Sports, Mr Yeung Tak-keung has excellent knowledge of sports policies and practices of the sports sector in Hong Kong, and is highly experienced in organising major international and regional multisports games and sports events, including the Beijing 2008 Olympic & Paralympic Equestrian Events held in Hong Kong.


“Under his leadership, I look forward to seeing the NGCO do its best in successfully organising the 15th National Games, the 12th National Games for Persons with Disabilities and the 9th National Special Olympic Games with Guangdong Province and Macau in 2025.”


This will not only allow participating athletes to give full play to their talents, but also enable Hong Kong to scale new heights in the development of sports, the sports chief added.


Mr Yeung Tak-keung joined the Government as an Inspector of Police in 1984. He then joined the administrative service in 1994.


He has served in various bureaus and departments, such as holding the office of the first Commissioner for Sports from 2016 to October 2022. The post was transferred from the former Home Affairs Bureau to the CSTB upon government restructuring.
