Two flagship events, the Asia Summit on Global Health and the Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair (Medical Fair), will be held next week, highlighting Hong Kong’s strengths in healthcare.

Themed Innovation.Inclusion.Impact, the fourth ASGH brings together medical and healthcare government representatives and organisations, internationally renowned scientists and medical experts, investors and business leaders from around the world.

The plenary sessions explore opportunities in the healthcare industry and promote cooperation across the medical and healthcare fields.
