The award-winning leaders are visionaries who demonstrate the spirit of resilience by persistently contributing to the development of Hong Kong despite the challenges of the pandemic.

We have integrated new media and traditional media in a dual-track operation that enhances the development of the industry. We aim to serve Hong Kong people and readers around the world more effectively and with high standards.

On behalf of Sing Tao News Corporation, I would like to sincerely thank our sponsors, Mr Rimsky Yuen, Chairman of the Panel of Judges, and the members of the panel for their fair, just and professional selection of the elite leaders. I also wish our winners even greater successes in future to facilitate Hong Kong’s continued prosperity and progress.”

They are the trailblazers in their respective fields, constantly driving their industries forward. Their accomplishments are numerous and well recognised. They have also made invaluable contributions to the long-term development of Hong Kong.

The outstanding leaders recognised this year epitomize the sectors from which they hail, ranging from innovative technology, public affairs to professional sports. They are bold and innovative, steadfast and constantly improving. They make a positive impact and demonstrate a nurturing spirit to pass the torch to the next generation.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR, and Sing Tao News Corporation is also entering its 85th year. The Group will continue to demonstrate its professionalism and move with the times, as well as care for our society and serve the population. We will also report the truth of Hong Kong and tell the stories of China to the world.

Last but not least, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the esteemed members of society and sponsors for their unswerving support, in addition to the panel of judges for their fair and just selection of the award-winning elite leaders.
