They are looking into exploring academic exchanges and organ transplant.
Health Secretary Prof Lo Chung-mau is eyeing to work together with Mainland China for organ transplantation, academic exchanges, and organ transplant mutual assistance mechanism.
In a government statement, Lo said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Mainland completed an unprecedented cross-boundary organ donation with resounding success in December last year.
