During the expo, JD Health will invite senior experts from the WHO and the State Council’s medical reform group, as well as professionals from top global pharmaceutical enterprises to contribute to topics concerning the development of China’s pharmaceutical industry, digital transformation, and industrial innovation, among others.
Partners through the pharmaceutical industry, including international pharmaceutical companies, pharmaceutical distributors, and insurance companies, will also carry out a number of contract-signing activities. With the collective effort of all partners, the online fair will be truly representative of the “Internet+Health” ecosystem.
