The Macao Centre for Testing of Chinese Medicine of the University of Macau (UM) and the Shenzhen Institute for Drug Control recently co-organised the first Shenzhen-Macao testing technology forum in Chinese medicine online. More than 20 Chinese medicine testing experts and technicians attended the forum. During the event, they exchanged ideas on the development of key laboratories, cooperation in research and innovation, testing technologies and standardisation research of Chinese medicine, and talent training between both institutions. The two institutions will further leverage their strengths to deepen cooperation in different areas, in order to establish high-quality governmental mechanisms for the supervision of medicines in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and to promote the development of the medicinal industry in Macao and Shenzhen.
