Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO), Ms Emily Mo, joined the “Yee Hong Caring Heroes” online show hosted by the Yee Hong Community Wellness Foundation as a speaker on July 18.
In addressing the online show, Ms Mo complemented Yee Hong for its effective efforts in combatting the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. “While the disease has infected over 10 million people worldwide, Yee Hong, as the largest non-profit senior care organisation in Canada, has performed a remarkable job,” Ms Mo said. “Likewise, Hong Kong has been effectively controlling the situation and economic activities are resuming gradually”.
Ms Mo pointed out that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has deployed a comprehensive and co-ordinated approach to contain the spread of COVID-19. Besides, since the start of the pandemic, different companies and institutions in Hong Kong have made significant contributions to the global fight against COVID-19 through their world-class scientific researches and cutting edge technologies.
Before closing, Ms Mo invited viewers to learn more about how researches and innovations in Hong Kong are used to combat the disease through a short video “Hong Kong: Helping the Global Fight against COVID-19” produced by the HKSAR Government.
