China's health revolution and opportunities across industries


The annual Sydney China Business Forum is one of the leading events focusing on business interactions between Australia (Sydney) and China. Held for the fifth year on 2 November 2015, it is organised by the University of Sydney’s China Studies Centre, with the financial support of various partners

The theme of the 2015 Forum was ‘China's health revolution and opportunities across industries’. The forum focussed on issues that are crucial to the development of cooperation between Australia and China in the healthcare sector, such as current trends in China’s health industry, recent and expected regulatory reform; demand for hospital/medical central information systems and opportunities for Australian business; and the significance of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA). The full program can be viewed here.
The China Studies Centre, National Australia Bank and The George Institute for Global Health also released a joint report ‘Australia-China healthcare opportunities’.

The 2015 forum was attended by 260 delegates and has generated business opportunities for a number of Australian and Chinese companies. The China Studies Centre received overwhelmingly positive feedback from partners, speakers and delegates.
