Govt appoints HR office’s new deputy chief

The government has appointed Chan Un Tong as the assistant coordinator of the Human Resources Office for a year starting May 26, according to a dispatch published on the Official Gazette. Serving in the office since its establishment in 2007, Mr Chan has acted as acting assistant coordinator of the office since the original deputy chief, Lau Wai Meng, was transferred to the Labour Affairs Bureau in last December. The Human Resources Office is a government department that handles and reviews companies’ applications for imported labours.
