Opening remarks by CS and Chairman of Board of WKCDA
Following are the opening remarks by the Chief Secretary for Administration and Chairman of the Board of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA), Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session after the 53rd meeting of the Board of the WKCDA today (July 20):
Today, I take great pleasure in introducing Ms Suhanya Raffel. She has just been appointed by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority Board as the Executive Director for M+. She will report for duty on the first of November this year. Ms Raffel will be responsible for taking us through the next key stage of the M+ project as construction is under way, with completion of works in 2018 and opening of the museum scheduled for 2019.
Ms Raffel brings with her a wealth of museum management experience in the areas of curatorship, exhibitions and collection development, to name a few. Her capable leadership, professionalism and skills will no doubt ensure the successful opening of M+ museum to the people of Hong Kong as well as to the many overseas and Mainland visitors.
Later on, I will invite Victor, Mr Victor Lo, M+ Committee Chairman, and Suhanya to say a few words.
