Fair puts Chinese Medicine Advances under Microscope
7 August 2014 – The 13th International Conference & Exhibition of the Modernization of Chinese Medicine and Health Products (ICMCM) will feature over 130 exhibitors from 10 countries and regions, and bring together industry leaders for a series of high-profile information-sharing sessions from 14-16 August.
The ICMCM, jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and the Modernized Chinese Medicine International Association (MCMIA), takes place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre over three days, with the final day (16 August) also open to the public ticket-holders.
“The Chinese medicine industry is developing very rapidly in Hong Kong, and has become an effective platform for promoting traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and healthcare products,” said Clare Wong, Assistant Executive Director of the HKTDC. “For the first 6 months of 2014, Chinese medicine exports from Hong Kong amounted to HK$1.75 billion, an increase of 8.5% compared to 2013.”
“The ICMCM provides a great opportunity to bring together many of the leading experts in TCM to share their ideas and research,” MCMIA President, Vivien Chou, said at today’s press conference. “Hong Kong is the ideal gateway for promoting and bringing a fuller understanding of TCM to the world, in the hope of helping people lead healthier lives.”
