Healthcare enters new chapter

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today said primary healthcare development has entered a new chapter under the efforts of the current-term Government.   Mrs Lam made the statement at the District Health Centre - New Journey in Primary Healthcare Ceremony, noting that she advocated in her first Policy Address in 2017 the setting up of District Health Centres (DHCs) that are operated in a brand new mode with a view to enhancing public awareness on preventive healthcare and personal health management through community networks.   To date, DHCs or DHC Expresses have started service in 14 districts.

The Chief Executive noted that more than 11,500 Hong Kong enterprises have established a foothold in Qianhai since its inception.   “There is a lot of investment from Hong Kong. There are youth entrepreneurship projects in Qianhai. And more recently, through special policies, Qianhai has opened up more professional services for Hong Kong people - whether it is in the construction, engineering, town planning, architecture, legal and other (sectors).   “So with this expansion of Qianhai from less than 15 sq km to over 120 sq km, it will, of course, give us a much greater hinterland that we will continue to provide our professional services in many years to come.”   Mrs Lam added that it stands to reason that such an expansion will result in a major boost to Hong Kong’s status as a financial hub.   “If Hong Kong prospers with an international financial centre and all these commercial developments on both sides of the Victoria Harbour, you could imagine how many opportunities it will bring to Hong Kong’s various sectors and professionals.”
