You are invited to participate in the Swedish health care delegation headed by Mr. Gabriel Wikström, Minister for Health Care, Public Health and Sport on April 19 - 23, 2015 organized by Business Sweden and Swecare in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, the Swedish Embassy in Beijing and the Swedish Consulate General in Shanghai.
China's Twelfth Five-Year plan includes several ambitious health care targets. The health care insurance coverage is to be expanded, the essential drug list will be improved and hospitals reformed. A great number of new hospitals will be built and many new healthcare workers will be trained.
In 2006, Sweden and China signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the field of health care. Under this MoU the cooperation between our two countries has intensified. An action plan defines key areas for cooperation and during the visit in April a new action plan for the years 2015-2018 will be signed. China shows a great interest in "the Swedish model" and in combination with the growing market and the strong economy this offers great opportunities for Swedish companies.
The participants in the delegation will be given the opportunity to visit three strategic important provinces in China; Beijing, Jiangsu (Nanjing) and Shanghai. The delegation starts in Beijing and finish in Shanghai. Through a mix of meetings with key stakeholders and governmental agencies from national and local levels, study visits (hospital) and seminars, Swedish companies have the opportunity to present their solutions and build a foundation for future business with Chinese actors from both public and private sector.
