Because Hong Kong gets almost all its food from elsewhere, the authorities are more watchful than most about food safety. The Government has in place a wide array of measures to make sure that what people eat and drink is safe.

Environmental hygiene is another round-the-clock watch. Again, there is a store of safeguards to protect the community from pervasive diseases. Hong Kong continues to fortify itself well on the health front.
