Speaking at the session, Mr Wong said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region attaches great importance to the development of environmental protection and the recycling industry.


He added that the visit was also aimed at promoting technology exchange on solid waste management in bay area cities, as well as enabling Hong Kong to establish better contact with Mainland cities.


In the afternoon, Mr Wong and the delegation visited an environmental industry facility that manages solid waste.


With a comprehensive industrial network to manage solid waste, the facility focuses on turning municipal waste into energy. It also has treatment components on food waste, sludge and more.
