Many panelists at the forum, which was co-hosted by the Ministry of Science and Technology and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, conducted in-depth discussions on how scientific and technological innovation can address new challenges in global health.

Beijing has a large number of universities, research institutes and clinical medical centers, which can help to release the huge value of the pharmaceutical health industry with the city's accelerating opening-up and innovation, Yu said.
