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

Meet the Speakers

Mark’s involvement with China started in 2008 and since then he has considerable experience of working in the China/Hong Kong region both in terms of regulation but also business development. His energy and insight will prove valuable for others seeking routes to the Chinese market.
