Two senior Lands Department officials are to leave the Government to reportedly take up positions with Henderson Land Development. Victor Leung Lok-yiu will retire as government land agent for Hong Kong district and Leung Kam-leung will resign as district lands officer for Sai Kung. A move to join Henderson would reflect the increasing number of government officials who are leaving the public sector to pursue private-sector jobs. Senior officials who have joined the private sector in recent years include former Secretary for Transport Yeung Kai-yin, who left the Government in October 1993 to take up the post of executive director of Sino Land. Last year former police chief Li Kwan-ha took the post of adviser at Cheung Kong (Holdings). A Lands Department spokesman said Victor Leung would officially retire in November. Sources said Victor Leung, with 30 years' experience in the Government, would join Henderson to oversee the company's business in the United States. Leung Kam-leung had not yet officially resigned, the Lands Department said. However, the post of district lands officer for Sai Kung had been taken by Graham Ross, former chief estate surveyor in department headquarters. Henderson was not available to comment yesterday.
