    Mr Anthony Francis Neoh has had a distinguished career in public service as well as in private practice as a lawyer. Among the many public offices Mr Neoh has held are Chairman of the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission in 1995–1998, and Chief Advisor to the China Securities Regulatory Commission in 1998–2004, which he took on at the invitation of former Premier Zhu Rongji. From 1997 to 2008, he was a member of the Hong Kong SAR Basic Law Committee under the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. He is also active in the international scene of securities regulation, and was the first Asian elected to the Chairmanship of the Technical Committee of the International Organization of Securities Commissions in 1996. Mr Neoh is also a senior member of the Hong Kong Bar, and is active in civil appellate and international litigation and arbitration cases. His involvement in the academic field is equally impressive. He was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws by the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2003, and holds many adjunct, honorary and visiting professorial appointments in universities in mainland China and Hong Kong. He is also an Honorary Professor at the OUHK.

    Prof. Huang Jiefu

    Prof. Huang Jiefu is a world-class surgeon and a distinguished leader of China’s medical profession. In 1994, he performed the first successful liver transplant in China, and in 1997 he performed the first successful combined liver and kidney transplant. For more than 30 years, Prof. Huang has engaged in academic research on liver transplantation techniques and on the surgical treatment of malignant tumours of the gallbladder and liver, and on carcinoma of the hepatobiliary tract. In 2008 he was recognized by the Transplantation Society for his extraordinary contributions to the medical profession. Prof. Huang has also dedicated himself to the establishment of the organ donation system in China. Through his hard work, China has launched pilot volunteer organ donor programmes in 25 provinces and municipalities. From 2001 to 2013, Prof. Huang served as the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Health, making great efforts to advance medical reforms in China. He currently serves as an Academic Leader of several key national surgical projects at Sun Yat-sen University, and as Director of the Department of Hepatic Surgery at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College. He is also an Honorary Professor at many prestigious universities, including Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    Mr Bunny Chan Chung-bun, SBS, JP
    Doctor of Business Administration, honoris causa

    Mr Bunny Chan Chung-bun is the Chairman of Prospectful Holdings Ltd. In addition to being a successful business leader with over 30 years’ experience in the garment industry, Mr Chan has been active in community service, particularly in public administration, district development and youth affairs. In 2000, he was appointed a member of the Kwun Tong District Council, and has acted as the Chairman since being elected in 2004. He formerly chaired the board of directors of Pok Oi Hospital, and has been involved in many organizations and committees, such as the HKSAR Commission on Youth. In 2012, Mr Chan was appointed as a member of the Hong Kong delegation to the 12th National People’s Congress of the People’s Republic of China. As a firm proponent of the OUHK’s mission to provide lifelong learning for all, he became a member of the University Council in 2006, and since then he has provided much valuable advice on the University’s long-term development. He also set up the OUHK Chan Tak Education Fund in memory of his late beloved father. These varied contributions to society have earned him a Bronze Bauhinia Star medal in 2004 and a Silver Bauhinia Star medal in 2009.

    The Honorable Wong Yan-lung, GBM, SC
    Doctor of Letters, honoris causa

    The Honorable Wong Yan-lung was formerly the Secretary for Justice of the HKSAR government, being the youngest person in Hong Kong’s history to take up this post. He joined the ranks of legal practitioners in 1987 when he was called to both the Bar of England and Wales, and the Bar of Hong Kong. He has built up a successful private practice as a barrister in Hong Kong, specializing in constitutional, administrative, commercial and civil laws, and was appointed Senior Counsel in 2002. During his tenure as the Secretary for Justice from 2005 to 2012, Mr Wong worked tirelessly to promote Hong Kong as an international dispute resolution centre by revamping the Arbitration Ordinance and attracting world-class international arbitration bodies to establish a local presence. He also worked hard to promote the use of mediation in Hong Kong, chairing a cross-sector task force and enacting the Mediation Ordinance, the first mediation legislation in Hong Kong. He resumed his private practice in 2013 after stepping down from public office. Mr Wong’s achievements and contributions have earned him numerous accolades, including a Master of the Bench of the Honorable Society of Middle Temple in 2007 and a Grand Bauhinia medal in 2012.
