Ms. Sherry Fu, Director of the UoM China Centre, kicked off the event by welcoming all coming alumni and updated on the development of the Centre and the university. It was followed up by Ms. Shelley Lai, current President of the China Centre Healthcare Club. She gave a brief introduction of the Club’s committee members, mission and vision.
With a solid knowledge and vast experiences in pharma industry, Lisa took all alumni in retrospect of the past year of 2016. Though rising incomes, improving healthcare infrastructure, and enhanced insurance systems have propelled the Chinese pharmaceutical market to become the second-largest in the world, China pharmaceutical market slowed down and saw a single-digit growth in 2016. The event lasted till late as alumni had heated discussions on various questions.
The Club has a plan to hold at least four club events in this year, to serve as a business and educational platform for our alumni in the life science industry.
