Esteemed Members of the Election Committee:

I am Prof. Chan Wing Kwong. I currently serve as the Chairperson of the Hong Kong Registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners Association, Chairperson of the Federation of the Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Chinese Medicines Traders Association, and WFCMS (Hong Kong) Council Members Association. I am also a DAB member.

Hong Kong is in a critical period of riding out the epidemic and rebooting its development, while the nation is also striding towards a new phase of growth.  I firmly believe Hong Kong's biggest edge is One Country, Two Systems. Developing Hong Kong to its full potential is our top priority. Social harmony and unity are a must for Hong Kong's development. As an experienced practitioner in the Chinese medicine industry, I am committed to the following: striving for normalcy in people's lives and activities, promoting the legacy and innovation of traditional Chinese medicine, for Chinese medicine to play a greater role in the anti-epidemic efforts and enhance the healthcare system. I will encourage the development of the Chinese medicine industry to create more value for Hong Kong's economy.

The Election Committee reflects the epitome of our society. If successfully elected, I will learn from you all, liaise with you closely in my work at LegCo, listen to your views, and work professionally and pragmatically. Last but not least, I shall be understanding and responsible to serve the community's overall interest.


I enlist the support of all election committee members. Please vote for me on Dec 18!

  • Enhance resources to allow care homes to purchase Chinese medicine services to enable residents to enjoy more therapeutic options.
     

Seize the opportunity to develop the Chinese medicine industry

  • Strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the Chinese medicine industry in the Mainland, construct Chinese Medicine Highlands in the Greater Bay Area to build high-quality Chinese medicine hospitals with specialist services, and lay the foundations for talent training and I&T platform.

  • Modernise the Chinese medicine industry and promote its development, create employment opportunities and bring about high-quality industry development to launch the Chinese medicine business globally.

2. Carry forward Chinese culture and strengthen the population's national identity

  • Urge the Government to actively formulate policies that promote Chinese culture through community involvement to encourage citizens' practice and appreciation of Chinese culture. Organise various festivals to showcase Chinese values and cultural charms to the world. 

  • Subsidise and encourage NGOs, research institutions and universities to strengthen their studies of Chinese history and Chinese cultural arts.

  • Urge the SAR Government to enhance educational materials for Chinese history and civic and national affairs. Incorporate Chinese cultural studies into primary and secondary education. Deepen the population's sense of national identity and understanding of national affairs, raise their sense of belonging and respect for the country.

3. Consolidate Hong Kong's advantages and promote integration into the national development blueprint

  • Support the SAR government and give full play to Hong Kong's unique advantage of backing from the country and ease of access to the world. Consolidate Hong Kong's status as an international financial, shipping and trade centre. Maintain a free, open and safe business environment under the rule of law, expand and facilitate its exchanges with the world, and promote its "super-connector" role

  • Support the SAR government to promote exchanges, networking and cooperation between Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area cities, including promoting deeper financial cooperation between Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area cities, allowing them to play dual engine roles for the country. Promote the development of the Northern Metropolis and build an international I&T centre, and deepen cooperation with Shenzhen. Strengthen the economic and trade relationship between Hong Kong and ASEAN, and dovetail the national 14th Five-Year Plan, outline for the Greater Bay Area and Belt and Road Initiative.

4. Resolve long-standing problems in Hong Kong with appropriate solutions

  • Urge the SAR Government to develop more land through a multi-pronged approach and to break through the bottleneck due to socio-economic constraints. Increase housing supply, provide ample activity space, and ensure land resources are used in the public's best interests

  • Urge the Government to maintain market fairness, prevent monopolies, support SMEs, and increase upward social mobility. The Government should address the issue of poverty, and defend the interests of grassroots citizens and underprivileged groups, to ensure the general public can share the fruits of development in a growing economy. 

  • Urge the SAR Government to enhance the quality of education, and nurture a generation that loves the country, loves Hong Kong, and possesses a global vision and professional skills. Address young people's pressing concerns and provide more youth-oriented opportunities to help them achieve their dreams.
