Animal Welfare Across Borders meeting - Hong Kong

12 June 2019

UFAW recently supported a two-day international conference in Hong Kong as part of its activities worldwide to promote animal welfare.  Talks focussed on animal welfare issues experienced across the globe, from attitudes to pig welfare within the Chinese pig industry to differences in the regulations governing the use of animals in research around the world. 

There are now plans afoot to share the outcomes of the meeting with the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) Regional Welfare Strategy for Asia, the Far East and Oceania and the OIE Collaborating Centre for Animal Welfare Science and Bioethical Analysis to inform their work programmes.  You can read more about the conference here
