Financial services secretary leads declaration of interest with seven properties


The chief executive, politically appointed officials and members of the Executive Council made their declarations of interest on Thursday. Financial Services and Treasury Secretary Christopher Hui Ching-yu said he owns seven properties with families, which counts the most among top officials.

Chief executive John Lee Ka-chiu said he and his wife Janet Lam Lai-sim jointly owned a self-contained residential apartment with a parking space in Yau Tsim Mong district.

Chief Administration Secretary Eric Chan Kwok-ki and Justice Secretary Paul Lam Ting-kwok owned three properties with their families respectively, while Finance Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po said he and his wife owned two residential units.

Hui and his family hold a total of seven properties, which is among the top 21 officials. The properties included four apartments with three parking spaces on Hong Kong Island, as well as properties in Australia, Singapore and mainland China’s Hangzhou province.

Health Secretary Lo Chung-mao and Housing Secretary Winnie Ho Wing-yin also said they have overseas properties. Lo and his wife co-owned a residential unit in the UK, saying it was vacant, while Ho said he jointly owned an off-plan property in Singapore with his wife, which was due to be delivered by the end of 2025.

Culture, Sports and Tourism Secretary Kevin Yeung Yun-hung does not claim to own any property.

The first declarations of interests made by the Chief Executive, politically appointed officials and members of the Executive Council after taking office are available on government websites for public consultation.
