China Customs statistics show that in the first 10 months of 2017, China imported medical equipment worth 53.36 billion CNY, an increase of 12.3% over the same period last year. In October 2017, China imported medical devices from the European Union Member States worth 1.71 billion CNY, an increase of 24.7% compared to October 2016. With the development of the economy and the increase in the elderly population, the demand for the medical device market will become increasingly strong, and facilitate the growth of imports correspondingly.

In December 2017, EU Gateway to China already brought 34 European companies to the Chinese healthcare and medical market. The Programme and its business support services will in 2018 continue to provide a valuable platform for Chinese and European companies to cooperate in the key areas of disease prevention, early detection, and treatment.
