Asia Analysis – July 2019

In this July 2019 edition of Asia Analysis, we hear from Makoto Suematsu, President of the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED), who details the challenges around global data sharing for orphan diseases

One key point the author highlights is that when it comes to rare and undiagnosed diseases, data sharing plays a crucial part in ensuring a correct diagnosis for patients.

Other Asia industry insights include the future of the renewable energy market in the region, something that is explored here by VHR Global Recruitment, including a focus on Taiwan’s ambition to phase out nuclear power by 2025. We discover that Asia’s renewable energy capacity has nearly doubled during the last five years, making up a significant chunk of the global supply of 2,351 gigawatts.

We also provide insight into the work of China’s Minister of Finance Liu Kun, who is responsible for strengthening a proactive fiscal policy in one of the world’s biggest and most powerful economies. Certainly, since China introduced reforms in the late 1970s to create a “socialist market economy”, known in the West as the Opening of China, the country has consistently had one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

Finally, I want to mention our analysis of the Hong Kong Elderly Health Service. We find out that with a growing elderly population – and with it, a growing number of carers – Hong Kong’s Elderly Health Service has an increasingly important role today in promoting both good physical and mental health.

I hope that you will thoroughly enjoy browsing through this publication and that you will join us for many more in the years ahead.
