China To Launch Traditional Medicine Outlets Overseas
China is planning to build a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) hospital in Russia, the first of its kind abroad, and launch outlets in Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia this year.
"TCM service outlets, such as Chinese herb sales, short courses on TCM training and TCM treatment centres will be launched in various countries in Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia in 2009," Wang Xiaopin, a central TCM official, told China Daily.
"The first TCM hospital outside China is expected to be built in Russia this year," Wang, State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine foreign affairs deputy head, added. The move is aimed at boosting the recognition of TCM internationally.
Wang said Chinese experts would continue to promote TCM in the United States, France, Australia, and Russia and in Africa where the focus will be on preventing mosquito-borne diseases.
