Administrative Assistant Mr Liu Chi Ming said that he is pleased to be a member of HKRITA and he hopes that “I can contribute my best efforts to assist every colleague. This is my first job after finishing my studies, so I hope to gain more working experience here and will study part-time in the future.”

Another member of the Accounts Section, Mr Kenneth Yau, Accountant said, “It is my honour to be one of the staff members in HKRITA, and be able to contribute to the smooth running of the accounting system. With the constructive ideas and diligent effort of my teammates, I believe that our accounting procedures can be more systematic and streamlined so as to facilitate the daily operations of the centre.
