The two flagship events of the International Healthcare Week are the second Asia Summit on Global Health co-organized by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government and the HKTDC, and the 13th edition of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair.
The two events encompass both upstream and downstream healthcare industries, from technology research and development, investment matching and medical device manufacturing, to medical products and services.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare and the life sciences have become a global focus, Margaret Fong Shun-man, executive director of the HKTDC, said in a press release.
She said that the HKTDC has been promoting technology and medical devices through various channels over the years, and noted that Hong Kong has considerable strengths in medical health-related industries.
