Facts

The Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi District Board was established on 1 April 1985. Before that date, Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi were within the purview of the Tsuen Wan District Board.

The Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi District Board was renamed the Kwai Tsing District Board on 1 April 1988 to tie in with the name of “Kwai Tsing District Office”. With the return of sovereignty over Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government established the Kwai Tsing Provisional District Board on 1 July 1997.

The first K&T DC of the HKSAR started its operation on 1 January 2000. The term of office of the District Council Members started from that date and will end on 31 December 2003. On the same day, the English title “District Board” was renamed as “District Council”. In addition to a Chairman, there is a Vice-Chairman in the current K&T DC.

The constituencies and membership of all the previous K&T DCs [formerly known as the Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi District Board (KC&TY DB)/Kwai Tsing Provisional District Board] are set out below:
