Business Opportunities in the Chinese Healthcare Market

Monday 15 May 2017 – Barco – Kortrijk


The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure to invite you to a seminar on opportunities in the Chinese healthcare market.  This event will be held Monday 15 May at 13h30 at Barco, Beneluxpark 21, 8500 Kortrijk.


The seminar is organized in cooperation with the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, Flanders Investment & Trade, Agoria Healthcare Technology, Esscenscia, MedTech Flanders and the Regional Development Agency West-Flanders.


What is the opportunity?
Healthcare reform has become one of the priorities of the Chinese government.   China’s healthcare market is growing quickly—around 17% per annum in recent years.  It is now the second largest market in the world for medical devices and pharmaceuticals. China’s  healthcare service market is also quickly becoming one of the largest in the world.


During this seminar, Mr. Bo Ji, Chief Representative and Assistant Dean of the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, will give you a better understanding of the opportunities in the fast-growing Chinese healthcare market.  This will be followed by testimonials from Barco and Televic, sharing their experiences on the Chinese market.
