The Chinese government recently announced guidelines for the easing of market access barriers in a number of industries. The medical and healthcare industry has been identified as one of these key sectors.
The new regulations aim to encourage more private and foreign investment to further develop the country’s healthcare infrastructure.
Starting 1 January 2015, the government will introduce new financial incentives for foreign investment in senior care businesses.
We anticipate that 2015 will likely to attract more active private and foreign investment and M&A activities, in particular in the senior care sector.
International healthcare providers and private equity firms interested in the Chinese healthcare market should take note of these developments.
