The Financial Services Development Council (FSDC), an industry advisory body established by the Hong Kong Special Administrative region government in 2013, has announced the appointment and reappointment of members to its committees, with effect from January 17.
These new and existing members have been appointed to the six committees – policy research, mainland opportunities, new business, market development, human capital, and corporate governance – to provide counsel on specific work areas of the FSDC. The council has consulted the government on the appointment of the committee members in accordance with its Articles of Association.
FSDC chairman Laurence Li says: “Members of the six committees are seasoned industry practitioners who possess profound expertise and vast experience gained from different areas of the financial services industry. I am thrilled to have them as a part of the FSDC family to put forth valuable insights and advice for our work in policy research, market promotion and human capital development, helping consolidate Hong Kong’s leading status as an international financial centre connecting to the world.”
Li also thanked the 13 outgoing committee members, as well as the outgoing board members Winnie Wong, Donald Perry, and Stephen Wong Yuen-shan, for their extraordinary contributions to the FSDC in the past years.
He says the FSDC will continue to promote the growth potential of Hong Kong’s financial services industry by enhancing its capabilities in performing its key functions of policy research, market promotion and human capital development, as well as engaging stakeholders across various financial sectors.
