Executive Director

Samanta has been with Shiu Wing for 20 years. Shiu Wing is the leading steel manufacturer and rebar trading company in Hong Kong. The steel industry is highly carbon-intensive and Shiu Wing aims to reduce the upfront carbon of its products through responsible procurement and offering offsite prefabrication processing to its customers. In addition, Shiu Wing commissioned the largest solar energy generation system in Hong Kong in 2022 on the rooftop of its mill in Tuen Mun.

Samanta holds a Master of Engineering degree from University of Oxford.

In addition, she was a member of the Council of Sustainable Development under the Environment Bureau from 2017 to 2023.
