Development of Chinese Medical Professionals
and Chinese Medicines
245. The Government has decided to finance the construction
of a Chinese medicine hospital on a reserved site in
Tseung Kwan O, and invite the HA to assist in identifying a
suitable non-profit-making organisation by tender to take
forward the project and operate the hospital.
246. The practice of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong has a
solid foundation and is well positioned for further development.
The current-term Government has been actively promoting the
development of Chinese medical professionals and Chinese
medicines with a multi-pronged approach, which includes
establishing a regulatory regime, encouraging local tertiary
institutions to nurture Chinese medicine professionals,
supporting scientific research and innovation for Chinese
medicines, enhancing Chinese medicine primary care services
based on the concept of “evidence-based medicine”, and
promoting the development of the Chinese medicines industry.
