My heartfelt congratulations to the Hong Kong 2020 International Urban Forestry Conference, the first-ever international conference on urban forestry organised by the Development Bureau of the HKSAR Government.

The Conference aims at providing a platform for renowned international experts, decision-makers, academics and industry professionals to share experiences and best practices on urban forestry management and enhance the livability and resilience of our cities.
