Experience / Health
China’s medical treatment establishments, including hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, are now fully open to foreign investment. With an aging population and a growing middle class that is increasingly able to afford premium private healthcare services, it is not surprising that China is one of the most attractive destinations for foreign health care companies.
