Mr Cheung King Wah

We are saddened to report that Mr Cheung King Wah, a former Director of the Club 1992-1996, passed away in Shanghai on 7th August 2020 at the age of 94.

Mr Cheung commenced his career with Cosco Shanghai before transferring to the China Merchants Group in Hong Kong in 1980. He was appointed General Manager of Hong Kong Ming Wah in 1982 and took over the chairmanship in 1985. As Chairman he laid the foundations for Hong Kong Ming Wah’s development into a VLOC and VLCC operator of international renown.

Mr Cheung’s contribution to the maritime sector was considerable, in particular the far sighted importance he placed on education and training.

Our most sincere condolences to Mr Cheung’s family. He will be remembered with both affection and respect. He will be deeply missed by all.
