Appointments to Small and Medium Enterprises Committee

The Government today (December 21) announced appointments to the Small and Medium Enterprises Committee (SMEC). The appointments are for the period January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2014.

The new term of the SMEC comprises 26 members with Dr Jonathan Choi Koon-shum as the Chairman. Other members include businessmen, professionals, bankers, academics, representatives from organisations that provide support to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), the Director-General of Trade and Industry and the Deputy Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Commerce and Industry).

The Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Gregory So, thanked the Chairman and members of the new SMEC for accepting this important task. "SMEs are the pillar of Hong Kong's economy," Mr So said. "Over the years, the SMEC has rendered a lot of constructive advice to the Government. It has made significant contributions to the development of SMEs in Hong Kong. I believe the SMEC, under the able chairmanship of Dr Choi, will continue to provide valuable advice to the Government in formulating policies that are conducive to the development of SMEs in Hong Kong."

"I would also like to thank Mr Yu Kwok-chun, the outgoing Chairman, and other outgoing members for their valuable contributions during their terms of office," Mr So added. "Mr Yu has successfully led the work of the SMEC during the past six years as the Chairman."
