During the COVID-19 pandemic, the PMSA was commissioned twice by the Government to implement the Anti-epidemic Support Scheme for Property Management Sector to provide timely subsidies for frontline PM workers and recognise their contributions in anti-epidemic work, which had gained wide recognition from the industry. I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to all those who worked together with me for their support and invaluable advice which propelled the work of the PMSA forward and have achieved positive results.”
The Chief Executive Officer of the PMSA Alan SIU said, “On behalf of all staff of the PMSA Executive Office, I wish to extend our sincere gratitude to Chairman TSE and all serving Members for their dedicated services during their term which laid a solid foundation for the PMSA work and contributed greatly to the development of the PM industry. The PMSA Executive Office will work closely with Dr James WONG and the new-term PMSA to regulate through licensing, formulate Codes of Conduct and encourage continuing professional development of the industry so as to enhance the status and service standard of the PM industry in Hong Kong.”
