URA welcomes appointment of Michael Ma as Executive Director

The Urban Renewal Authority (URA) today (Thursday) welcomes the Government's appointment of Mr Michael Ma as an Executive Director of the URA, effective 15 July 2016.

"As one of the Executive Directors of the URA, Mr Ma's profound knowledge and expertise in urban regeneration, particularly in the area of town planning, are invaluable for taking Hong Kong's urban renewal to a new level.  His active participation in leading the development of the district-based planning approach and taking it through to its implementation in the various projects in To Kwa Wan recently commenced, have demonstrated his vision and passion for urban renewal," said the Chairman of the URA, Mr Victor So Hing-woh.

Mr Ma joined the URA in 2006 and has played a key role over the years in formulating the URA's strategy in project planning and contributing to the smooth implementation of a number of major redevelopment and preservation projects.

On his appointment as an Executive Director, Mr Ma, a professional town planner, said he was very honoured by the Government appointment and he was committed to serving continuously the community in his new capacity.

"I look forward to working closely with the URA Board, the URA Management, all staff members, the Government, Legislative Council, District Councils and all other stakeholders, in undertaking urban renewal for the benefit of our community," said Mr Ma.
