Transcript of remarks by SCED at media session

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Mr Edward Yau, at a media session on the appointments of the Under Secretary and the Political Assistant for the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau during his visit to North District today (August 1):

Reporter: What expectation do you have on your new Under Secretary and how would be the distribution of work?

Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development: I am glad that I have been able to secure two additional members to my team, one taking up the Under Secretary post and the other taking up the Political Assistant post. These new members would strengthen my team in the sense that they would bring in expertise in different areas. I've got a very good team of civil servants helping me but I am conscious that my portfolio covers quite a wide spectrum of activities, and economic activities in particular. With the different backgrounds, different expertise and diversity of experience, I hope it can enrich our strength and we can take things forward in a more effective manner.
