Spain will build the largest tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine hos­pi­tal in Europe, fol­low­ing the sign­ing last week of an education and clin­i­cal prac­tice co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment be­tween the Bei­jing mu­nic­i­pal govern­ment and Span­ish au­thor­i­ties.

Barcelona, in the Cat­alo­nia re­gion, will pro­vide land for the hos­pi­tal, which is ex­pected to cost 80 mil­lion euros ($88.6 mil­lion), ac­cord­ing to Span­ish busi­ness news­pa­per Ex­pan­sion.
