Press Statement by Mr Billy Lam

The Managing Director of the Urban Renewal Authority, Mr. Billy Lam, issues the following press statement today (Fri).

"After 37 years of public service including the last six years with the Urban Renewal Authority (URA), I have decided that it is now the right time to take my long-awaited break and spend more time with my family. As such, I have informed the Chief Executive SAR, the Secretary for Development and the Chairman of URA that I would not be renewing my contract upon the expiry of the current one at the end of this year.

It has been my great honour to serve URA over the past years, and be allowed to play a part in advancing urban renewal in Hong Kong. It has been both a challenging as well as a fulfilling experience which I will look back with pride and fondness in the years to come. I would like to register my sincere thanks to the guidance of the Government, leadership of the Board, hard work of my colleagues, and the understanding and support of our other stakeholders in the community without which URA would not have come so far since its inception in 2001.

I wish the Chairman and the URA Board, Management team, staff and my future successor, every success in advancing urban renewal to greater heights."
