A Fond Farewell to Our Friend Ada Chung

The Corporate Registers Forum (CRF) Community wishes Ada Chung, the former Registrar of Companies for Hong Kong, all the very best in her new role as Hong Kong’s new privacy commissioner.  Ms Chung has served on the CRF Executive since 2007 in the capacity of Treasurer.  Ms Chung also hosted the 2017 CRF Annual Conference in Hong Kong.

Ms Chung has been a strong supporter of the CRF as an organisation and a generous participant in our conferences and strategy.

Ms Ada Chung is a barrister-at-law and a Certified Public Accountant.  She was appointed as the Registrar of Companies of Hong Kong in August 2007 and has since been heavily involved in the rewrite of the Companies Ordinance, the implementation of the new Companies Ordinance and the introduction of electronic company incorporation and electronic filing of company information in Hong Kong.

As a representative of the Financial Secretary, Ms Chung is an ex-officio council member of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.  She also sits on the Financial Reporting Council.  Before her appointment as the Registrar, she was a Deputy Law Officer and headed the Civil Litigation Unit of the Civil Division of the Department of Justice.

Ms Chung takes up the role of privacy commissioner from 4 September 2020.
