Thank you all who attended the Melbourne HealthCare Drinks event on Thursday 9th November.
First Jason Sun gave an overview of the opportunities in the Chinese healthcare market and what Victorian government is doing in this space. Where China has a huge demand for healthcare, Australia is well positioned to address the needs and is globally competitive.
Following this framework, Fei Long gave a detailed example of collaboration – Australia China Research Accelerator – to facilitate Australia-China partnerships in the health sector. It started from ophthalmology, aiming to expand to multiple disciplines. Both speakers shared the wisdom of success as well as pitfalls to avoid.
Under Tim Carroll’s moderation, we had a heated Q&A session which could go on and on but for time restraints! And of course, the event would not have been possible without the venue sponsored by Melvin Lee at BioClub.
