RSVP NEEDED. OPEN TO AMCHAM MEMBERS ONLY. ALL AMCHAM MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN Dear Committee Members,
You are cordially invited to our meeting which will be held on Tuesday, July 22 at 12:30pm to welcome Dr. Hon. Helena Pik-wan Wong, Chairperson, Panel on Food Safety and Environmental Hygiene, Legislative Council, HKSAR who will speak on Gate-Keeper for Food Safety From Farm to Table .
Against the backdrop that more than 90% of food supply in Hong Kong is imported food, food safety has been one of the main concerns of Hong Kong people over the years. Being one of the gate-keepers for the food safety-related legislations and regulations, the Panel on Food Safety and Environmental Hygiene (the Panel) of the Legislative Council (LegCo) plays an important role in monitoring and advising the Government on policies and issues of public concern relating to food safety.
Communication and collaboration among the Government, the LegCo and the Trade is believed to be the important foundation for ensuring food safety for the public. In the upcoming luncheon, Dr. Hon. Helena Wong will share the role and functions of the Panel, forthcoming legislation as well as a community food safety monitoring program. As seating is limited, it is essential to confirm your attendance in advance, by clicking on the 'Register' button at the top.
Looking forward to seeing you there, Veronica Sze AmCham Food & Beverage Committee Chair
