China has dedicated hundreds of billions of dollars to reforming its healthcare system with the goal of providing accessible and affordable health services to its citizens and bridge huge disparities between rural and urban areas. Reform has opened the door to foreign investors looking to tap into the sector, projected to grow into a $705 billion market by 2015. As business opportunities multiply, so has competition among foreign investors seeking a stake in China’s healthcare market.
Asia Society Northern California is bringing leading executives and experts in the healthcare industry from the U.S. and China for a one-of-a-kind event that will explore the opportunities and challenges foreign investors face in China’s burgeoning healthcare market. Panelists will provide market intelligence on two emerging sectors that present immense opportunities for foreign investment: service providers and medical devices. Join leading healthcare professionals from throughout the Bay Area to discover new investment opportunities in China’s healthcare boom and for an evening of networking.
