The National Government is supportive of air pollution management, as a result of its experience with the Beijing Olympics and as a result of the importance attached to scientific research, social welfare, ecological integrity, and control measures set out in President Hu’s Scientific Development concept. There are opportunities for Hong Kong to join multi-city Mainland research initiatives such as the CAPES project. [1]

A number of issues not yet on the policymaking radar should be dealt with in a co-benefits approach, including interactions between pollutants; fine and ultra-fine particulates; vapour-phase emissions from traffic; and climate change and its relationship with air pollution. [1]
