HKCAAVQ Council Member Wilfred Wong appointed as ordinary member of Travel Industry Authority (TIA)

10 Dec 2019

The Government earlier announced that the Chief Executive has appointed Mr Ma Ho-fai as the Chairperson of the Travel Industry Authority (TIA) and 28 persons as ordinary members of the TIA, including 13 trade members and 15 non-trade members, for a period of two years with effect from January 1, 2020. The appointments were made in accordance with section 1 in Schedule 9 to the Travel Industry Ordinance (TIO) (Chapter 634). Mr Wilfred Wong Kam-pui, also Council Member of HKCAAVQ, has been appointed as one of the non-trade members of the TIA.

The TIA is a new statutory regulatory body of the travel industry established under the Travel Industry Ordinance. It is primarily responsible for the licensing and regulation of travel agents, tourist guides and tour escorts. The trade members comprise individuals who are engaged in inbound and outbound travel agent business, tourist guides and tour escorts, and members of the Board of Directors of the Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong (TIC). Non-trade members come from various fields and can provide advice to the TIA with their expertise and experience in the respective areas, including law, accountancy, finance, education, consumer affairs and general administration, thereby contributing to the setting up of a comprehensive and effective regulatory regime for the travel industry.
