Recently, China introduced a new national development strategy—one with major implications for private healthcare investors. It’s called the 12th Five-Year Plan, which expands the healthcare reforms that the Chinese government introduced earlier in 2009 and reinforces the government's commitment to easing ownership requirements.
While this new approach is in its early stages, it offers exciting new opportunities for foreign private investors. The impact could be dramatic, as it opens up a market that is expected to grow.
In our enclosed report, 10Minutes on investing in China’s private healthcare system, we explore opportunities that providers, payers, and investors can adopt to build a presence in China, from management contracts to joint ventures, lending their expertise to local public or private entities.
We hope you find this edition of 10Minutes insightful and informative. We aim to deliver PwC's perspectives on key business issues in a quick 10-minute read.
