Join AusMedtech and Australia Week in China


You are invited to join AusBiotech and Austrade in China (10 – 15 April 2016) for a complimentary medical technology (AusMedtech) half-day intensive, followed by Austrade’s ‘Health and Aged Care’ stream of the ‘Australia Week in China’ mission.

This six-day program commences in Beijing, travels to Hangzhou, Wuzhen and concludes in Shanghai and provides an unprecedented opportunity to access dove-tailed, pre-arranged schedules with no program cost.

The AusMedtech intensive will be held on Sunday 10 April 2016, 2.00 – 5.00pm in Beijing and the Austrade program commences in Beijing at 7.00pm with a Welcome Reception and briefing. See the AusMedtech intensive agenda here and Austrade’s ‘Health and Aged Care’ stream of the ‘Australia Week in China’ here.

The AusMedtech mission is part of the larger ‘Australian Medical Devices & Diagnostics to China’ project that aims to facilitate medical devices and diagnostics trade and partnership with China by breaking down the major barriers for Australian companies. This activity is supported with funding from the Australian Trade Commission as part of the Asian Business Engagement (ABE) Plan*.

Delegates will arrange their own travel (flights, trains), accommodation and some meals (see the Austrade schedule for included meals).

China’s demand for health and aged care services is expected to grow significantly, driven by the needs of a growing middle class, a rapidly ageing population and government policy reforms.

Gain in-depth understanding of the Chinese health and aged care market, trends and business opportunities.

Participate in seminars, site visits, business-networking activities and opportunities to meet senior Chinese business leaders and entrepreneurs. Participants in the ‘Health and Aged Care’ stream will have the opportunity to hear from the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), the National development and Reform commission (NDRC) and National Health and Planning Commission in Beijing on policies relating to medical devices, biotechnology and clinical trials.

Meet leading Australian and Chinese industry leaders and policy decision makers to discuss the implications of ChAFTA for health and aged care services, and relevant products such as pharmaceutical, medical devices, and other products for the ageing population.
