China’s demand for health and aged care services is expected to grow significantly over the next decade, driven by the needs of a rapidly growing population, an ageing demographic, new health challenges and government policy reforms. In 2020, China’s population is expected to reach 1.4 billion, of which 248 million will be aged 60 years and above. These elderly citizens will require accommodation in facilities that support their medical needs and lifestyle, and a qualified workforce to care for them – both of which are in short supply. The Chinese Government has embarked on an ambitious program to transform the country’s health and aged care industry. It is accelerating reform across the industry, including integrating healthcare and aged care services; introducing policies to attract private capital from domestic and overseas investors; and encouraging the adoption of smart healthcare. The changing landscape of the Chinese health and aged care industry has created significant opportunities for Australian companies.
