The directorates of the department and members of the Executive Committee of "Customs YES" also attended the ceremony.

The CYHPA comprises different enthusiastic community leaders from the business sector who work as a team to contribute valuable strategy and render various kinds of support to the activities organised by "Customs YES", and to promote the "4C" core development directions, namely "Country", "Community", "Customs" and "Calibre", with committed efforts.

Ms Ho said at the inaugural ceremony that the establishment of the CYHPA strengthens the synergy effect of the existing youth work of the Executive Committee of "Customs YES" and further assists Customs in providing more holistic activities and training to young people, helping them unleash their full potential in society and contribute to Hong Kong and the country.

In his speech, Mr Choi said that members of the CYHPA endeavour to work closely with Customs to foster positive values and strengthen the sense of belonging to society of young people, as well as cultivate their sense of national identity and patriotism.

Since its launch in 2021, "Customs YES" has received overwhelming support from the community and has gained popularity among young people. As at today, over 4 100 young individuals aged between 12 and 24 have become members of "Customs YES".
