We are very sorry to have to report the death of Edmund Sung, a long-time friend of WCPS, at the young age of 58. Edmund served as the local host organisation (Hong Kong Productivity Centre) program manager for our World Congress held in Hong Kong and Beijing in 2001 and worked tirelessly to make the event a success. Apart form his work on the Congress, Edmund contributed a great deal to the productivity movement in Hong Kong. His work and his personality will be missed by many. WCPS sends out condolences to his family and friends – but above all sends thanks for Edmund’s effort and enthusiasm in support of productivity development.
