Ines Liu, Senior Manager from Dezan Shira & Associates’ International Business Advisory Team, was invited to share her insights on the Chinese MedTech industry and regulatory landscape.

Tom Duke, Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy, highlighted the complementary advantages of the UK and China in the medical device and equipment industry and emphasized the importance of cultivating the rapidly growing but challenging Chinese market.

In the following round table discussions, Ines discussed the key driving forces that are reshaping the Chinese medical devices industry, such as the aging population and the concept of universal health, which offer opportunities for British companies to enter the market. She also suggested that British companies focus on medical innovation and industry ecosystems in key cities along the Yangtze River Economic Belt, including but not limited to Shanghai, Suzhou, and Hangzhou.
