  • Hong Kong: Health control meeting held

    December 4, 2017 The Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong, Shenzhen, Zhuhai Health, Animal & Plant Quarantine & Food Safety Control Meeting was held in Hong Kong today.

    Officials from the five areas discussed public health, inspection and quarantine, and food safety issues, and agreed to further strengthen exchanges and co-operation.

    They also had in-depth discussions on important international and regional issues, including antimicrobial resistance, avian influenza and mosquito-borne diseases.

    Addressing the meeting, Acting Secretary for Food & Health Dr Chui Tak-yi said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government launched the Hong Kong Strategy & Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance in July to outline ways to contain antimicrobial resistance in Hong Kong.

    On the prevention and control of avian influenza, he said Hong Kong has established a stringent surveillance and control mechanism to reduce the risk of outbreaks.
