Welcome Message from Mr. Simon CHAN, JP, District Officer (Eastern)

Simon CHAN

Welcome to the website of the Eastern District Office.

The Eastern District Office (EDO) is closely connected with the residents of Eastern District in many respects. Our mission is to promote the communication between the Government and the public and help ensuring that the formulation and implementation of government policies will best suit the needs and aspirations of the public, with a view to achieving a harmonious community and good working and living environment for all. To achieve this goal, EDO is divided into the Area Liaison Teams, the Community Affairs Team, the Special Duties Team and the District Building Management Liaison Team. Our colleagues in these teams provide services to the residents on different livelihood related matters. Besides, we make use of different channels, including the Area Committees, to reach out and enhance our contacts with the public. Implementing the District Administration Scheme is one of the key functions of EDO. We have always been assisting the Eastern District Council to reflect local views to the Government, organise various community building and community involvement activities, and carry out many environmental improvement programmes and minor local public works projects. Through the District Management Committee, the District Officer helps coordinating the planning of government facilities and provision of public services in Eastern District. The EDO Public Enquiry Service Centre provides enquiry service and arranges free legal advice service, statutory declaration service, etc. for the residents. In the event of emergency and natural disaster, EDO provides temporary shelter and coordinates relief and after-care services for those in need.

Starting from 2008 the government further enhances the role of the District Council in district administration. I sincerely hope that EDO could foster even closer cooperation with the Eastern District Council to better reflect public opinion and respond to the needs of the residents, and that the provision of public service and resolution of district problems could be carried out more promptly and effectively.

This Home Page aims to give the public a better understanding of the mission and scope of service of EDO, its office structure, a profile on Eastern District and the latest activities and news in the District, as well as a hyperlink to the Eastern District Council website. I hope you could find this Home Page useful.

Finally, I wish to call for your support to the work of EDO. We will do our best to turn Eastern District into an ideal community for all of us to work and reside.
