  Reflections in Brief – “My Vision”  
On 10 February 2010, Mr. Lam Woon-kwong, the new Chairperson of the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) attended a meeting of the Panel on Constitutional Affairs of the Legislative Council where he expressed his vision and mission as the new Chairperson of the EOC.
“The EOC should be a defender of equal opportunities and human rights, always voicing out our views on various discrimination issues,” said Mr. Lam Woon-kwong. “Under the four equal opportunities ordinances, we would do our best in carrying out our statutory duties of investigation, conciliation and legal assistance with the goal of assisting people who have experienced discrimination. We also have the important moral obligation of being a strong advocate on other discrimination issues which are not covered by the existing legislation.”
