          The President announced that his tenure would be ended this year and sincerely
          wished the new Council every success under the leadership of President-Elect
          Ms. Anna Kwong.

          The President briefly reported that some major events were taken place this year,
          such as Venice Biennale, the Golf Day, HKIA Conference as well as Annual Ball.

          Members were invited to read the details from the full report which was uploaded
          onto www.hkia.net on 9 December 2008.

          There being no objection, the meeting endorsed the appointment of Stephen
          Poon and Pau Shiu Hung as Honorary Auditors for the term of 2009.

 7.       A Speech by Mr. Henry Tang Ying-yen, GBS, JP
          The President welcomed and introduced Mr. Mr. Henry Tang Ying-yen, GBS, JP
          as the speaker of the Annual General Meeting.

          Mr. Tang outlined in his speech that major development projects, urban renewal
          and heritage conservation would be essential in shaping Hong Kong as an
          international world city, for which is the goal to be achieved by the government in
          the coming next few years.

          He addressed that the 10 major infrastructure projects remain as the core of the
          infrastructure development plans. To cope with the current global economic
          meltdown, it is important to keep the developments timely and on track so as to
          strengthen Hong Kong’s competitiveness and also improve cross-boundary
          connectivity.

          He also emphasized that urban renewal is the government’s responsibility to
          beatify the city and to improve the built environment. Recent renewal project
          such as Woo Cheong Pawn Shop in Wanchai is one of the successful examples
          in revitalizing and contributing to the ambiance of the area.

          He further stated that the government is fully aware of the importance of heritage
          conservation and also the need for a holistic approach to conserving our valuable
          heritage. The government would pragmatically execute the conservation policy
          by granting financial assistance to non-profiting making organizations to carry out
          adaptive use of historic buildings.

          He thanked the Institute in assisting with heritage conservation policy and Urban
          Renewal Authority in reviewing its strategic planning. Continuous contributions
          and support from the profession are invaluable elements to strike the right
          balance between modernity and history.

          He believed that ample opportunities will be created for architects by fast-tracking
          development projects. He once again addressed that the government cannot
          accomplish the goals without the creativity, inspirations and professionalism from
          Hong Kong architects.

          Mr. Tang concluded the speech by congratulating the 77 architects who are
          receiving the certificates of PRC Class 1 Registered Architect Qualification of
          Mutual Recognition under the CEPA framework.               He assured that the
          government will continue to strengthen the relations with the Mainland and open
          up more opportunities for architects for both local and Mainland China.

          The President offered a vote of thanks to Mr. Tang for his informative speech.

 8.       Report by the Honorable Patrick Lau, SBS, JP, Legco Member for
          Functional Constituency – Architectural, Surveying and Planning
          The Honorable Patrick LAU, SBS, JP reported his recent works at LegCo Panel,
          including the “Cooperation Arrangement on the Support of Restoration and
          Reconstruction in the Sichuan Earthquake Stricken Areas” which was recently
          signed by the HKSAR Government and Sichuan Provincial Government in
