“Help­ing poor farm­ers have more out­put or sav­ing chil­dren’s lives are based on uni­ver­sal agree­ment and China also has a lot to bring to those causes.”

To im­prove China’s con­tri­bu­tion to global health, he urged for im­proved drug reg­u­la­tions in the coun­try to au­tho­rize and com­mer­cial­ize med­i­cal in­no­va­tions more ef­fi­ciently.

Cur­rently, med­i­cal in­no­va­tions hap­pen­ing in China need to go through com­plex and longer in­spec­tions, he said.
