Invitation from William Franklin

Chinese investment into Biotech

China is facing a huge demographic change that is challenging how it delivers centrally based healthcare to its citizens. Headline statistics are:

  • 11.8% of population will be over 65 by 2020
  • over 50% of men smoke
  • 92 million live with diabetes
  • life expectancy for those born 1990-2010 increased from 69.3 years to 75.7 years
  • 9.19 million suffer from dementia

As China seeks to find medical solutions to these issues and develop services to support an ageing population, they are looking for involvement from the international community. This provides a perfect opportunity for those in biotech research to seek access to new sources of funding and markets. 

We will hear from experts that have been directly involved in developing cross-border business relationships with China. They will share their knowledge and experience of what it takes to be successful and some of the risk factors to be aware of. We shall also profile some current opportunities that will give those attending an insight into the growth potential within China.
