Secretary for Health Prof Lo Chung-mau today met the Qianhai Authority and Nanshan District People's Government delegation to exchange views on the development of healthcare services and the healthcare innovation industry.


Prof Lo said: “Upholding the principles of complementarity, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has all along been driving healthcare innovation and collaboration in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) by adhering to the premise that the moves are conducive to the development of the healthcare system in Hong Kong and the Mainland.


“All these aim to enhance the policy initiatives for providing convenience to Hong Kong citizens who pursue development in the Mainland and live there.”


The health chief also cited the 2022 Policy Address which stated that the Hong Kong SAR Government will make good use of the Guangdong-Hong Kong and Hong Kong-Shenzhen co-operation mechanisms to pursue deeper collaboration with other bay area cities and take forward the development of major platforms for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau co-operation.


“The Qianhai Cooperation Zone is indeed one of the important collaboration platforms for development in the GBA, creating significant opportunities for Hong Kong to integrate into the overall development of the country, including the healthcare aspect.”
