Kat O Heritage Trail opens

The Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department today opened the Kat O Heritage Trail in collaboration with Kat O village to mark the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.   In addition to further promoting Kat O’s history, culture and intangible cultural heritage, the trail offers an in-depth travel experience to visitors.   Located in northeastern New Territories waters, Kat O is a harmonious community built by fishermen and Hakkas hand in hand.   The trail, with 27 interpretation panels along the route, was planned on the existing footpath and connects many important historical and cultural relics.   Visitors may explore an old Chinese restaurant and grocery store on Kat O Main Street, walk past old banyan trees where villagers used to take a rest or stop by a former pig farm and outdoor cinema.   A more in-depth understanding of Kat O’s long history is warranted by a visit to Kat O Tin Hau Temple and Sai O Hexagonal Well.   Visitors may also enjo

HK, Guangdong measure welcomed

The Government welcomed an announcement by Guangdong on the recruitment of Hong Kong Chinese medicine practitioners (CMPs) by public healthcare institutions in the Mainland cities of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.   The Traditional Chinese Medicine Bureau of Guangdong Province today announced that Hong Kong CMPs will be recruited within 2021, on contract terms, by selected pilot sites of public Chinese medicine healthcare institutions in Guangzhou and Shenzhen.   The recruitment procedures, as well as terms and conditions of employment, will be determined by the relevant healthcare institutions. The authorities will take into account the implementation situation when considering whether the scope of the pilot sites should be expanded.   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government welcomes the measure and expressed gratitude to the relevant authorities of the central government and the province for their staunch support to the development of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong.   “The measure enables Hong Kong CMPs to further their practice within the national healthcare system, thereby promoting exchanges in Chinese medicine and providing Hong Kong CMPs, in particular the younger generation, with the opportunity to pursue development in the bay area."   Under Hong Kong’s Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement with the Mainland and relevant supplementary agreements, a series of policies has been in place to enable Hong Kong CMPs to practise Chinese medicine and establish healthcare institutions in the Mainland, Prof Chan added.   “The latest arrangement allows Hong Kong CMPs to practise in Mainland public healthcare institutions, thereby expanding their scope for development.”
