Press statement
30th January, 2019

The Path of Democracy (“PoD”) wishes to congratulate Professor Richard Wong Yue Chim on his recent appointment to the position of Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hong Kong. It is with mixed feelings that we accept the resignation of Professor Wong from the Board of Governors of the Path of Democracy and as Head of our Hong Kong Academy of Politics and Public Policy (“HKAPP”) with effect from the 28th February, 2019.

Professor Wong has been a pillar of our think tank and his resignation will leave a considerable void which will be difficult to fill; but at the same time, we are delighted that our loss will be the gain of the University of Hong Kong and we wish Professor Wong every success in his future endeavour. We are nevertheless pleased to announce that Professor Wong will continue to remain as the Honourary Advisor to our Board with special responsibility to advise on all aspects in relation to HKAPP. The Board is also pleased to announce that it has unanimously agreed to appoint Professor Sung Yun Wing as new Head of HKAPP with effect from the 28th February, 2019. PoD will continue to work relentlessly to build on the already phenomenal success of HKAPP to take it to even greater heights.
