The HCWG includes all the companies working in the healthcare sector, such as manufacturing companies of medical equipment, devices or pharmaceutical products and supply of IT solutions.

The initiative to create a network of companies operating in the healthcare sector was activated by the Embassy of Italy in the P.R.C. 

The first tangible result of this initiative was the publication of "Pacchetto di cooperazione sino-italiana", presented at Chinese counterparts during the visit of the Italian Minister of Economic Development, Flavio Zanonato, in January 2014.

The HCWG is committed to promote awareness of the know-how and quality of Italian products and companies in the healthcare sector in China and to share industry information between operators to maximize business opportunities.\

For more details consult the HCWG brochure 2018.
