Global medical giant sees 'exponential' growth opportunities along the BRI

Established in 1981, International SOS provides medical and travel security services, which includes pre-travel advice and assistance abroad, and provides information for pandemic planning.

Joël Gosset, managing director of the company, told CGTN that his company is very much involved in the coronavirus outbreak situation. He praised China for its efforts in containing the COVID-19 pandemic, saying the country "can be proud of its responsibility and maturity in the management of this crisis."

Gosset said the new Foreign Investment Law, which went into effect earlier this year, is keeping the pace of changes in foreign investment, as well as revealing the country's firm determination to expand its opening to the world. International SOS entered China in 1989, following the foreign direct investment of multinationals. Now, it is eyeing bigger opportunities from the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) as Chinese companies go global.
