Alcon closely following China’s growing healthcare needs
With China prioritizing its citizens' access to healthcare and the country's opening up, global eye care company Alcon continues to regard China as a highly important strategic market, Dorothy Wang, general manager of Alcon Greater China told CGTN as she shared her insights on the industry.
China's healthcare system has gone through tremendous transformations and developments in the past few decades, and changing lifestyles and its aging population will drive a greater need for better healthcare services, she said.
Wang also spoke highly of China's efforts in the sector, referring to the country's healthcare reform and Healthy China 2030, a national campaign launched in 2016.
In addition to its market potential, China's improving investment environment is also attracting more global investors to the healthcare sector. The new foreign investment law is a sign of continued opening up, and will enable multinational companies to run their businesses in China more efficiently and competitively, resulting in stronger confidence when investing in the Chinese market, according to Wang.
As for new industry trends, Wang emphasized the application of digital technology, including the use of cutting edge digital tools for surgeon training, such as virtual reality and 3D visualization.
