是次活動除了是西貢植樹20週年紀念，亦是減碳宣傳運動啟動禮。本會希望在未來的植樹活動中，結合在港日本人和香港居民的努力，使香港邁向碳中和。在典禮中，在本會會長陳遠華 BBS太平紳士的帶領下，各嘉賓進行了剪綵儀式及宣誓儀式，祝願香港未來如同宣誓口號一樣「Carbon Reduction Go Go Go」！
The 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Japan Exchange Memorial Forest and the Kickoff for carbon reduction promotional campaign ceremony organized by the OISCA International Hong Kong was successfully held in the Yuen Long Town Hall on December 14, 2021.
Our group was honoured to invite:
Mr OKADA Kenichi, Consul, Consulate-General of Japan in Hong Kong
Dr YIP Yin, Jackie, Assistant Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (Country and Marine Parks Branch)
Mr Gordon WU, JP, District Officer (Yuen Long)
Dr Wong Fook-yee, Former Assistant Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation (Country and Marine Parks Branch)
and other distinguished guests attended.
At the ceremony, OISCA Hong Kong introduced the history and development progress of the Hong Kong Japan Exchange Memorial Forest. Souvenirs were awarded to various sponsors and organizations presenting appreciation for supporting in these 20 years. Furthermore, receiving the support from consulate-General of Japan in Hong Kong, the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department and Surein Foundation in the ceremony, OISCA Hong Kong established the plan of forest planting activity in the future.
The ceremony is not only celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Japan Exchange Memorial Forest but also kicking off for carbon reduction promotional campaign. We would like to strive for the goal of carbon neutrality with the forest planting activity cooperating with Japanese in Hong Kong and the Hong Kong citizen.
Finally, led by Mr Alexander Chan, President of OISCA Hong Kong, the ceremony has concluded with a ribbon-cutting. We wish the Hong Kong citizen may participate in our activities like our slogan “Zero Carbon Emission Go Go Go!”
Thank you again to all guests, sponsors, and participating units for taking the time to attend the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Japan Exchange Memorial Forest and the Kickoff for carbon reduction promotional campaign ceremony.
