Political heavyweight Starry Lee Wai-king rose to the top ranks in the political arena after having embarked on a political career at a young age and working her way up from a humble background. Despite coming from a working-class family and growing up in a public housing estate, Lee became the youngest district councillor in Hong Kong in 2000 at the age of 25. In 2004, she was recruited by Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong Party (DAB) veteran Jasper Tsang Yok-sing to join the party alongside other young professionals. Her political career continued to progress when she was elected to the Legislative Council in 2008, and then in 2011, was elected as vice chairwoman of DAB. In 2015, Lee was chosen as the first female and youngest leader to chair DAB, gaining her even more public recognition. She pledged to nurture young talent and lead DAB to greater success in crunch elections.

As the leader of DAB and with significant experience in the Legislative Council, Lee will talk about how she worked her way up the political ladder, the challenges she faces, such as how to improve the city's competitiveness and nurture young talent, as well as her views on political developments in Hong Kong, at the Chamber's "Town Hall Forum Series: The New LegCo" on 27 March.

Speaker(s) The Honourable Starry Lee Wai-king is a member of the Legislative Council and Kowloon City District Council, and Chairperson of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong. She was an Executive Council member from July 2012 to March 2016.

She is a Certified Public Accountant and serves as Director at KPMG. Lee obtained her Bachelor Degree of Business Administration from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and her Master Degree of Business Administration from the University of Manchester.
