Sir Donald Tsang Yam-Kuen (traditional Chinese: 曾蔭權; simplified Chinese: 曾荫权), GBM, KBE (born 7 October 1944) is the current Chief Executive and President of the Executive Council of the Government of Hong Kong.

Tsang began his civil service career in 1967, occupying various positions in finance and trade in the Hong Kong Civil Service, and was appointed Financial Secretary of Hong Kong in 1995, becoming the first ethnic Chinese to hold the position under British administration. He remained in that position after the transfer of the sovereignty of Hong Kong before being appointed Chief Secretary for Administration after the resignation of Anson Chan. Tsang has won praise for his handling of the Hong Kong economy both as Chief Executive in the mid-2000s and as Financial Secretary in the late 1990s.
