Brave Chan Yung, BBS, JP (Chinese: 陳勇, born September 1969[1]) is a Hong Kong pro-Beijing politician. He is the vice-chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB) and chairman of the New Territories Association of Societies (NTAS). He has been the Hong Kong deputy to the National People's Congress since 2013.

Career[edit]

Chan was graduated from the City University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor of Social Work. He later obtained a master's degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has been a registered social worker and participated in many public services. He has also been appointed to many public positions including the member of the Commission on Youth (2003–2009) and Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education, secretary general of the Hong Kong Celebration Association, vice-president of the Federation of New Territories Youth, member of the North District Fight Crime Committee and member of the Hong Kong Professionals and Senior Executives Association. He was also the Hong Kong member of the 10th All-China Youth Federation, a youth organisation led by the Communist Party of China.[2] In 2008, he was appointed to the North District Council.

Pang was elected chairman of the New Territories Association of Societies in April 2011.[2] In 2013, he was elected Hong Kong’s Deputy to the 12th National People's Congress (NPC) by just 1,620 voters. During his office in the NPC, he urged the mainland authority to ban convicted parallel-goods traders from visiting Hong Kong on the Individual Visit Scheme for up to several years.[3] In the same year, he was made vice-chairman of the DAB.

In February 2014, he was appointed to the Lantau Development Advisory Committee to roll out a series of proposals to improve its infrastructure before the HK$83 billion Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge opens in 2016. He cited an instruction from National People's Congress chairman Zhang Dejiang to the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of the State Council to work with the Hong Kong government and "make plans and assess the city's tourism capacity".[4]

He has been the spokesman of the Alliance for Peace and Democracy, the anti-Occupy Central rally group since 2014.

He was made Justice of the Peace in 2011 and was awarded the Bronze Bauhinia Star in 2014.
