Medicine imports, exports foresee stable growth
    2018-February-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LEADING Chinese medicine and health products makers are keeping a foothold in developed countries as they foresee sustainable growth momentum in mature markets.

Last year, the total value of medicines and health products exported from China reached US$60.7 billion, up 9.44 percent year on year, according to a report released this week by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products (CCCMHPIE).

The growth rate was the highest in the past five years, reversing the declining trend in 2016. Of the total, exports of Western medicines reached US$35.46 billion, jumping 12.62 percent year on year.

“Supply-side reform is showing results, as underdeveloped enterprises are gradually withdrawing from the market and superior companies are standing out, thanks to their high-quality products,” said Meng Dongping, deputy director of CCCMHPIE.

In 2017, China exported traditional Chinese medicines valued at US$3.64 billion, up 2.07 percent over the previous year. The export of plant extracts reached US$2.01 billion, increasing 4.33 percent year on year, and the export of Chinese patent medicines reached US$250 million, climbing 11.03 percent.

The export of Chinese medical services is also steadily increasing. Currently, there are about 2,000 traditional Chinese medicine clinicians working abroad every year, accounting for 60 percent of the country’s total expatriate doctors.

“More than 60 agencies have launched hospitals, healthcare clinics specializing in traditional Chinese medicine, and Chinese medicine research centers in over 20 countries and regions, driven by an increasingly strengthening demand for a healthy and high-quality life,” Meng said. The value of medicines and health products imported to China reached US$55.88 billion last year, jumping 16.34 percent year on year.(China Daily)
