In 2019, China’s healthcare import and export volumes both saw an increase from the previous year, reaching the highest levels since 2011. Europe, Asia, and North America were China’s top three continental partners for healthcare foreign trade. Developing healthcare reform in China continued to unleash new market opportunities, while international registrations and certifications acquired by Chinese companies were also on the rise.

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has placed the healthcare and life sciences industries under the spotlight. As a result of the pandemic, the public are now paying more attention to topics such as early warning and prevention of infectious diseases, vaccine research and development, medical equipment, and online medical services.

The EU SME Centre and the China-Britain Business Council are happy to invite you for this workshop on 15 December 2021 which will be a launch event of the latest report on Healthcare Sector in China (download it here). 

The Healthcare Market in China (2021 Update) report provides an overview of the healthcare sector in China. It covers:

  • Key factors and drivers that are shaping the sector in China
  • Analysis of China’s healthcare providers
  • Up-to-date information on the market, regulations, key players and market entry requirements for three subsectors: (i) pharmaceuticals; (ii) medical devices; and (iii) healthcare services
  • Main opportunities, challenges and key success factors for European SMEs

In addition, since the new Medical Device Regulations came into effect on 1st June 2021, the webinar will further illustrate main MD classification on the regulations as well as medical devices registration procedure and the procurement policies, by Cisema, who is specialised in product registration in China.
