Since then, he has served on multiple committees in various capacities, including Chair of the Auditing and Assurance Standards Committee and Securities Regulatory Advisory Panel. These committees oversee the standard-setting of the HKICPA, as well as carry out its responsibility of regulating and promoting efficient accounting practices in Hong Kong with the aim to safeguard its role as a leading international financial center. In addition, Eric was also Chair of the Digital Steering Group and the Branding and Communications Advisory Panel, both of which aim to enhance the delivery of services to HKICPA members and to strengthen the CPA brand.
