Asia Healthtech Network is organised and led by the community, for the community. It gives us an unique position to speak on behalf of the HealthTech community. It is led by a volunteer group of board members who care about the future of HealthTech in Hong Kong, Greater China and Asia.

01.

Hong Kong is poised to lead healthtech development owing to its natural strengths.  

It is one of the world’s most influential and active healthcare centres, located at the intersection of China, Asia and the rest of the world. It already houses a broad and diverse healthtech community and exports healthtech developments globally.  It is one of the most connected and sophisticated cities in the world with a well-educated, increasingly affluent population and a long tradition of entrepreneurship.

02.

Hong Kong’s growing healthtech ecosystem is expected to grow significantly in the next five years.

This will be spurred by initiatives such as the regulatory sandbox and healthtech innovation hub jointly developed by Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI).

03.

Although advances are being made, further work is needed to gain the maximum benefit.

A crucial next step will be adjusting the city’s regulatory framework both to give greater clarity to businesses looking to set up in the city and to update rules in order to bring them into line with new business practices while continuing to offer strong investor and consumer protection.

04.

All the ingredients exist in Hong Kong for a world-leading healthtech industry.  

With the strengths of all the different participants being harnessed by the Association, the industry is creating the catalyst for sustained future development.
