Welcome Professor Anthong Cheung Bing-leung to join the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS)
It is with great pleasure that the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS) welcomes Professor Anthong Cheung Bing-leung. Professor Cheung joins APS as Research Chair Professor and will be contributing his wealth of knowledge and experience to both the academic community at EdUHK as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Professor Cheung has served previously as President of the Hong Kong Institute of Education, now the Education University of Hong Kong, and between July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2017, as Secretary for Transport and Housing in the administration of Leung Chun-ying, Hong Kong, SAR, China.
Professor Cheung’s extensive scholarship into public administration and public sector management, coupled with his practical experience in managing two of the most complex and often controversial issue areas in public policy, transport and housing, is ideally suited to the ongoing research and teaching focus of APS. As a distinguished scholar and practitioner of public policy, Professor Cheung’s appointment will enhance the Department’s effort to educate and train the next generation of change leaders and contribute to better public sector governance outcomes for Hong Kong, the greater China region and Asia more generally.
