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).
