A traditional Chinese medicine promotion kicked off at the New Zealand Parliament Building on Thursday.

Four traditional Chinese medicine practitioners from Beijing, China diagnosed and treated local people.

Raymond Huo, chairman of New Zealand Parliamentary Justice Select Committee, said that the cultural experience of traditional Chinese medicine is in line with the theme of the 2019 China-New Zealand Year of Tourism.

"In the global arena, traditional Chinese medicine is attracting more and more people. Legislation management is the guarantee for the overseas development of traditional Chinese medicine. The EU, the United States and Australia are trying the legislations of traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. The New Zealand Parliament has included traditional medicine in the legislative plan as early as 2010," said Huo.

"The main reason for the current delay on the progress of overseas traditional Chinese medicine legislation is that we have limited knowledge or understanding of traditional Chinese medicine, and there is a long way to go for international exchange and popularization of traditional Chinese medicine," he added.

Wang Xiaofeng, director general of the Department of International Cooperation of the National Administration of Traditional Chinese medicine of China, believed this event will promote the cultural exchange between China and New Zealand, so that more New Zealanders can understand traditional Chinese medicine and experience traditional Chinese medicine.
