The 2nd Cross-Straits (Fuzhou) Medicine Expo kicked off at the Wenquan Conference & Exhibition Center in Fuzhou on Oct 15.
The Medicine Expo was sponsored by Fuzhou Municipal Government, Fujian Food and Drug Administration and the Taiwan Affairs Office of Fujian province. It ended on Oct 17. There were 500 health enterprises from both sides of the Taiwan Straits gathered at the expo promoting medicines, medical apparatus, health preservation products, cosmetics, health products, medical agencies and other health industries. The Taiwan exhibition area attracted nearly one hundred Taiwan enterprises. Drinking mineral water can improve your health, eating biscuits can regulate blood sugar levels and the effects of drugs can be inspected from spit. These were the common themes of the expo. Enterprises displayed their “top products” along with many health preservation products and medical apparatus from local Taiwan, which took local residents by surprise.
At Fuzhou Medicine health industry investment promotion conference and Cross-Straits Medicine health industry development forum, the members of health enterprises, scholars and experts from both sides of the Straits gathered there to give suggestions to the development of medicine health industry on both sides of the Straits.
Peng Qiongfang, the director of Taipei Biotechnology Service and Business Trade Association posed a positive attitude towards the cooperation between the health enterprises across the Taiwan Straits. She considered that both parties can discuss the difference between examination and inspection regulations on the drug and health industry to promote cooperation between Taiwan and Fujian enterprises.
