SHANGHAI, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 12th China International Exhibition of Senior Care, Rehabilitation Medicine and Healthcare (CHINA AID) will take place from 7th to 9th June 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
According to the China NBS (National Bureau of Statistics), at the end of 2016, there were over 230 million people over the age of 60 in China, among them, persons age 65 or older numbered approx. 150 million, accounting for 10.8% of the total population.
Taking into account the increasingly serious ageing situation, as is pointed out in the Thirteenth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China (2016-2020), the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period is a key window period for the development of the elderly-age work systems. China must take the opportunities to accelerate the development of relevant systems.
In recent years, despite continual improvement of the elderly care service system in China, the following shortcomings have become increasingly prominent: low level of marketization, lack of innovation, high vacancy rate of beds at elderly care institutions, backward conditions of elderly care facilities and shortages of medical care professionals.
For those looking to make serious inroads into the world's largest 'silver market', with the maturing consumer now estimated at one third of the economy, burgeoning 'silver healthcare' trade shows are perhaps the best route into China's rapidly developing 'silver market' for foreign companies. Leading international exhibitions, such as the influential CHINA AID held annually in Shanghai, offer the right balance of promotional and networking opportunities for businesses looking to act first to gain the proper footing here.
With 16 years' robust growth, CHINA AID has developed into one of the most authoritative elderly and long-term care events in China. It is one of the largest and most established exhibitions of its kind in Asia, incorporating multiple platforms for product demonstration, service showcasing, knowledge exchange and networking prospects.
CHINA AID is the must-attend event for growing businesses in the fast-developing senior care industry in China, providing foreign companies wishing to establish their presence with serious business opportunities.
