Office of the Chief Executive (Chinese: 行政長官辦公室) or CEO is one of the government agencies for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It consists of the immediate staff to the Chief Executive of Hong Kong and multiple levels of support staff reporting to the Chief Executive. The current director is Edward Yau.


Prior to the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong, the Government House has always been the office location for the Governor of Hong Kong. After the transfer in 1997, the first Chief Executive of Hong Kong, Tung Chee Hwa choose not to reside in the Government House, which relocated the office to the Government Secretariat.

When Donald Tsang assumed office in June 2005, he decided to reside in the Government House again and initiated a multiple months length remodeling for the house. In January 2006, the office relocated back to the Government House.
