China is a middle-income country with an increasing demand in medical care, the Premier said. Accounting for less than 5 percent of China’s industries, the industry lags developed countries, with huge market potential, he added.

As the industry concerns people’s health, efforts should be made to develop it as one of China’s supporting industries, the Premier said.
