Dear Members and Friends,

The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) in collaboration with its Healthcare Working Group (HCWG) and the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), is pleased to invite you to the upcoming event Italian Healthcare Eco-system for China. It will be held offline on April 12, 2024, from 3:00 pm (Beijing time), on the occasion of the China International Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF).

Fostering international collaboration and knowledge exchange is essential for driving innovation and advancing healthcare solutions. With this in mind, we propose a seminar that aims to introduce Chinese companies to the Italian healthcare ecosystem. This seminar will serve as a platform to highlight the strengths and opportunities within the Italian healthcare sector while facilitating networking and partnership opportunities between Chinese and Italian healthcare entities.

Italy boasts a world-renowned healthcare system that consistently ranks highly in global assessments. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Italy's healthcare system ranks among the top 10 in the world for overall performance. Bloomberg Healthcare Efficiency Index 2022 classified the Italian Healthcare System at the fourth place. These rankings underscore Italy's commitment to delivering high-quality healthcare services to its citizens and position the country as an attractive destination for international collaboration and investment in healthcare.

The Italian healthcare ecosystem comprises several sub-sectors, each characterized by excellence and innovation. In 2022 Italy was the 6th biggest producer of pharmaceuticals and Italian pharmaceutical companies have made significant advancements in areas such as diagnostic imaging, oncology, neurology, and rare diseases, positioning themselves as key players in the global pharmaceutical landscape.

Similarly, Italy's medical device industry is renowned for its cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions. Italian medical device companies are recognized for their expertise in areas such as diagnostics and minimally invasive surgery, offering state-of-the-art products that meet the highest international standards.

In the field of education, Italy is home to prestigious medical schools and research institutions that attract students and scholars from around the world. These institutions offer comprehensive training programs and conduct groundbreaking research in areas such as biomedicine, biotechnology, and healthcare management, contributing to the advancement of medical knowledge and innovation.

Furthermore, Italy has emerged as a leading destination for medical tourism, offering world-class healthcare services coupled with cultural attractions and scenic landscapes. Italian hospitals and clinics provide a wide range of medical treatments and procedures, attracting patients from across the globe seeking high-quality care in a desirable setting.

Overall, the seminar will provide Chinese companies with valuable insights into the Italian healthcare ecosystem, highlighting its strengths, opportunities, and potential for collaboration.

By fostering dialogue and partnership between Chinese and Italian healthcare stakeholders, we aim to drive mutual growth and innovation in the global healthcare industry.
