Pharmaceutical and healthcare industries are the two key industries to be intensively developed in next 5 years according to the development strategy of China.
Taking biopharmaceutical industry as an example, China just decided to invest at least one billion pounds in next 5 years. The whole industry is shifting from the production of generic medicine to new drug discovery. Although the Chinese companies have established considerable manufacture capability, what is urgently demanded is actually new technology in these fastest developing industries. Technology transfer in pharmaceutical and healthcare industries from Europe to China therefore has a huge market with great potential.
