Secretary for Food and Health: Hong Kong is ready for equestrian events

The Secretary for Food and Health, Dr York Chow, today (August 5)
visited the Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian venue and the Olympic Village in Sha Tin to see the final preparations for the Olympic equestrian events.

Dr Chow also took the chance to lift the spirit of frontline staff he
met. He told the staff to be prepared for whatever challenges lay ahead and provide top-notch venues for horses to compete in their best form. He also asked the staff to provide quality medical and health care and to ensure safe and good food.

Dr Chow inspected quarantine offices, stables, canteens and cafes,
medical corridors and witnessed the readiness shown by the staff of
Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, Department of Health, Hospital Authority, Auxiliary Medical Services and the volunteers.

Appreciating the hard work and strenuous efforts the staff had put
into the preparations, Dr Chow said he hoped colleagues would display their utmost professionalism to make the Olympic and Paralympic Equestrian Events in Hong Kong a resounding success.

The secretary also took the chance to talk to the French, Dutch,
Canadian and Hong Kong athletes and met President of International
Federation for Equestrian Events Veterinary Commission, Dr Nigel Nichols.

Dr Nichols and the athletes are very happy and satisfied with the
facilities and services provided. Saying the horses were settling well and happy, some even commended Hong Kong for giving them the best stable they ever had.
