I am pleased to welcome you to the Hong Kong 2022 International Urban Forestry
Conference, its second edition organised by the Development Bureau of the HKSAR Government. This year, the
Conference has put together a comprehensive and exciting programme over two full days covering topics of common
interest among government officials, professionals, academics and practitioners in arboriculture, urban forestry
related fields around the globe.
The theme of this year's Conference, "Well-being: Our Urban Forest‧Our Community" is a very timely choice for all of us, who have been besieged by the pandemic in the past two years. The Conference will explore subjects ranging from the urban forestry in infrastructure planning and design, its relationship with the wellness and the health of people, and its sustainable management via a mix of formats including talks, panel discussions to virtual booth exhibitions. I am also excited to share a breakthrough of this year Conference that a Greater Bay Area session will be hosted to manifest our concerted effort in building more liveable cities in the southern part of the Mainland China.
I am grateful to the Organising Committee for providing valuable advice in the making of this fabulous platform for renowned international experts, decision-makers, academics and industry professionals to share experience, exchange best practices on urban forestry management and renew ties with one another despite the difficult circumstances. My gratitude also extends to all our supporting organisations and Government departments for their generous support.
I wish you all the best of business and a healthy and rewarding year to come.
