If you deal with cosmetic products in China, you’ve probably been confronted by the ethical hurdle of animal testing. And if you’re selling portable medical devices, or supplying health supplements and foods, you’ve probably found yourself tied up in red tape. But does this mean no market access to China?

Not if there’s another solution. In this case the panacea is cross-border e-commerce, which offers new routes to market in the healthcare and life sciences industry, especially for healthcare and cosmetic products. The rise of the internet spells the “death of distance” – and a new lease of life for your business.

Join CBBC with speakers from the British Embassy, KJT and Sinopharm (国药集团), the biggest state-owned enterprise in the Chinese healthcare industry and one of the global Fortune 500, to discover how cross-border e-commerce provides an alternative solution to the traditional business model in your industry.

Topics to be covered include:

• Policy/regulatory changes

• Cosmetics

• Medical devices

• Health foods and supplements

An interpreter will be present at the event.
