Tap TCM's potential, premier says


Li urges medicine companies to develop diversified products to improve health

Premier Li Keqiang called for traditional Chinese medicine producers on Tuesday, during a visit to Yunnan province, to introduce advanced methods from developed economies to make diversified products and improve people's health.

The premier spoke with managers and researchers of Yunnan Baiyao Group Co in Kunming, the provincial capital. The company is renowned for making traditional medicine products from Baiyao, or white medicine, which was invented in 1902 by the Yi ethnic group and is famous for its efficiency in stopping bleeding.

The medicine enjoys a high reputation in China.

Li said traditional Chinese medicine has great potential for development of new products and expanding in overseas markets. In the bigger picture, the company can develop more manufactured goods under the category of dietary supplements.

In some developed countries, dietary supplements are sold in supermarkets to meet demands of people of various ages of both genders, Li said. "I hope your company can introduce innovative ways from Western medicine to make such products," he said.
