Lam touts Lau as 'chief executive of people'Central Station | 11 Oct 2018
The SAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has defended "Chief Executive of the people" Andy Lau Tak-wah after he was lambasted for throwing his support behind reclamation.
The much-loved superstar Lau attracted disdain for doing the voiceover of a video supporting the creation of an artificial island to the east of Lantau.
Lam said she was impressed that the 57-year-old voiced his opinion, and insisted that it is unfair for people to criticize him for it.
Lam added that the two of them have things in common as she is four years older than Lau, grew up in the same environment, and climbed the social ladder as grassroot citizens to attain success.
She also offered the singer best wishes for his December concert.
