At this year's NPC and CPPCC sessions, Wu Mingjiang, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and former Vice President of the Chinese Medical Association, submitted a proposal to "comprehensively promote the promotion, innovation, and development of medical devices in China.". The proposal puts forward several suggestions around basic research on medical devices, construction of standard systems, effective integration of production and demand, and encouragement of the development of domestic medical devices.
Wu Mingjiang said that as of the end of 2015, there were more than 14000 medical device manufacturers in China, of which nearly 90% had a production scale of less than 20 million yuan, only more than 300 had a production scale of more than 100 million yuan, and more than 2600 were able to produce high-end products.
Relevant government departments have strengthened toplevel design, established a platform for communication between production and demand, promoted interactive communication among industry, education, research, and medicine, as well as technological breakthroughs, so as to achieve the localization of a number of core equipment and key components, and effectively increase the market share of some domestic medical devices. At the same time, we will strengthen research on fundamental and important engineering technologies in the industry, and strengthen research and service capacity building on specialized manufacturing equipment, testing equipment, process technology, reliability research, stability research, and other industrial application engineering technologies required for mass production of medical devices.
