HK shares air pollution concerns with WHO

The Hong Kong government has raised concerns about air pollution with the World Health Organization in Geneva.

The WHO’s director-general, Margaret Chan Fung Fu-chun, says she was contacted in October by a senior government official with responsibility for “environmental health.”

Chan — who served as the territory’s director of health before joining the WHO — did not identify the official, but told an Asia Society lunch that they had discussed what could be done to improve local air quality, RTHK reports.
