"Hong Kong Seeks to Update Animal Welfare Laws to International Standards" by Associate Professor Amanda Whitfort of the Faculty of Law

A 2010 review of animal welfare legislation done by The University of Hong Kong highlighted inadequacies in Hong Kong's out-of-date animal protection laws and recommended a more humane approach in line with international guidelines and practices. While it is a long, complicated process to amend laws, the 2010 review has received widespread support for the introduction of an animal welfare-friendly policy reflecting the authors' recommendations.
