Transport and housing is an extensive portfolio. At his last appearance at a Town Hall Forum in May, Secretary for Transport and Housing the Hon Frank Chan Fan focused on the transportation side. In December, he will return to the Chamber to discuss his policies to tackle the various housing issues in Hong Kong.

Optimising the use of existing land and finding more land for development has long been a challenge for the Government. The Transport and Housing Bureau has closely collaborated with various policy bureaus and departments to find ways to increase the amount of land available. The shortage of affordable housing is a pressing social problem, and more needs to be done to solve this issue to ensure Hong Kong continues on its path of stable social and economic development.

How does his bureau plan to expand the availability of land to achieve our shared vision for a prosperous and harmonious Hong Kong? Sign up today for this exclusive, closed-door forum on 10 December for the opportunity to share your thoughts with the city's transport and housing chief.

Speaker(s) Mr Chan is appointed Secretary for Transport and Housing on 1 July 2017. Before assuming this post, Mr Chan was the Director of Electrical and Mechanical Services and the General Manager of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Trading Fund since December 2011.

As the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Mr Chan is the Chairman of the Hong Kong Housing Authority, Hong Kong Maritime and Port Board, Hong Kong Logistics Development Council and Aviation Development and Three-runway System Advisory Committee. He is also a board member of the MTR Corporation Limited, the Hong Kong Mortgage Corporation Limited and the Airport Authority Hong Kong; as well as a member of the Council for Sustainable Development, Task Force on Land Supply and Youth Development Commission.

Mr Chan is a Honorary Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and Fellow of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers.
