Declaration of investments
As a measure to uphold civil servants' impartiality and accountability, each and every civil servant is required at all times to avoid having private investments which may cause real or apparent conflict of interest with his official duties.
For civil servants who are filling certain designated posts notably those at the upper echelons of the service with access to market sensitive information, they are in addition required to declare, on a regular basis, their private investments in and outside Hong Kong.
In particular, a civil servant:
It is the Government's policy that civil servants during their final leave remain subject to the prevailing civil service rules, including the rules governing the avoidance of conflict of interest. Accordingly, a directorate officer who has proceeded on final leave remains subject to the relevant declaration requirements until he/she has left the service (Please also see the Retirement section of the Administration of the Civil Service).
