China Executive Briefing | Engaging China on Health PolicyVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Join Asia Society Australia for our 7th China Executive Briefing as we share insights from policy experts and Australian business on how to interpret and engage with China’s evolving health policy. Our expert panel of Professor Gordon G. Liu (Institute for Global Health and Development, Peking University), Dr Dell Kingsford Smith (Cochlear) and Dr Maoyi Tian (The George Institute) will discuss China’s major health trends, collaboration on medical research and the innovative technology to meet China’s evolving social and health challenges.
With its complex demographic landscape, what policies does China have at its disposal to manage its ageing, tech savvy and increasingly affluent population? What are the key targets of its Healthy China 2030 initiative, and what social and demographic trends will shape Chinese health issues into the future?
This online event will unpack how Australian governments, business and the medical community can interpret China’s pressing social and demographic trends to collaborate with Chinese entities on research, product development and health services delivery across China.
