Tse Chin-wan joins Macau eco forum

Secretary for Environment & Ecology Tse Chin-wan today attended the 2024 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition in Macau and officiated at its opening ceremony with local officials.


This year’s exhibition was held with the theme “Reaching the Dual Carbon Goals through Green Transformation”.


The Environment & Ecology Bureau’s exhibition booth presented innovative initiatives adopted by Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government departments and Hong Kong industries, including smart technologies for environmental enforcement, environmental impact assessment, energy conservation, green transportation, waste recycling as well as food waste management technologies.


In addition to touring the exhibition and exchanging views with Hong Kong exhibitors, Mr Tse paid a courtesy call on Macau Secretary for Transport & Public Works Raimundo Arrais do Rosário and met Guangzhou Municipal Ecological Environment Bureau Director Wang Baosen to discuss environmental subjects and collaboration opportunities.


Noting that Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou are Greater Bay Area cities in close proximity, and are facing similar environmental issues during the development process, Mr Tse said he believed that enhancing co-operation between Hong Kong and Macau could improve the ability in dealing with climate change and other environmental challenges, ultimately optimising the bay area’s environment.
