Chen Fengfuzhen said that the World Health Organization supports the development of traditional medicine and supports the promotion of Chinese medicine in the Czech and Central and Eastern European countries, and is willing to make efforts to this end.

 

Earlier, on June 10th, the Chinese Medicine Bureau of China held the first batch of special projects for the cooperation of Chinese medicine international cooperation. The meeting deployed the overall design ideas and next-step work requirements of the special cooperation of Chinese medicine international cooperation, announced the list of selected institutions and selected projects for the international cooperation of Chinese medicine in 2015, and listened to the next steps of the various options.

The overall situation of social development and health and family planning work, as well as the important measures of the “One Belt, One Road” strategic plan.

 

Multi-factors restrict the internationalization of Chinese medicine

Although the pace of Chinese medicine in the world has been accelerating in the past two years, the international exchange of Chinese medicine still faces many difficulties and challenges.

 

The primary constraint is that the recognition of Chinese medicine and the differences in the legislative level are enormous, leading to a rather uneven development of Chinese medicine in various countries. Southeast Asia has relatively high recognition of Chinese medicine. Central Asia, West Asia, Africa and other regions generally lack legislative supervision measures for Chinese medicine. However, the management of Chinese medicine in Europe is mostly based on safety, and there are more restrictive laws and regulations. The development of international cooperation in Chinese medicine.

 

There is still a lack of uniform industry-related international standards and norms in the world, which is another factor that mainly restricts the internationalization of Chinese medicine. At present, more than 90 countries have established plant drug registration standards, but overall, they are mainly formulated with reference to Western medicine standards. Practice has proved that the quality control, production process, pharmacology and toxicology, clinical evaluation and product registration standards of traditional Chinese medicine and traditional medicine related products cannot completely imitate modern western medicine and botanical medicine.

 

In addition, international cooperation in Chinese medicine faces many legal obstacles and trade barriers. Huang Zhenhui, director of the Traditional Medicine International Exchange Center of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, told the Economic Information Daily that many countries have adopted laws and regulations in the legislation to recognize and regulate traditional Chinese medicine and other traditional medicines. The technical barriers have made the international trade of Chinese medicine face new obstacles on the basis of the original difficulties. In order to protect the development of traditional medicine in some countries, some countries have deliberately improved the monitoring standards for imported Chinese herbal medicines, proprietary Chinese medicines, and Chinese herbal medicines. However, the monitoring of Chinese herbal medicines and other products is more relaxed, such as heavy metal pollution and pesticide residues. Etc. This also creates obstacles to the exchange of traditional Chinese medicine and traditional medicine among countries.

 

Finally, the threat of intellectual property rights also restricts the international development of Chinese medicine. Biological piracy incidents occur frequently. Some developed countries in Europe and America use their advanced technology to make changes to traditional medicines, and then apply for intellectual property protection. This has caused huge economic losses to countries with original traditional medicine intellectual property rights, and has also hindered the development of international cooperation in Chinese medicine. An important factor.

 

Chinese medicine has great potential in the world

As a traditional cultural treasure, Chinese medicine industry people agree that it will have great potential in the world, and specific measures need to be cautious.

 

First, continue to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with international organizations such as WHO. For a long time, the Chinese government and the World Health Organization have carried out active cooperation in the field of traditional medicine, among which the cooperation of the WHO West Pacific Region is particularly close. Promote cooperation between Chinese medicine and traditional medicine in all countries of the world through the influence and appeal of the World Health Organization. For the cooperation in the field of Chinese medicine and traditional medicine standards, research and development of trade-related Chinese medicine technology, information, terminology, services, special products and other related standards will play a positive role.

 

Secondly, consolidate and expand cooperation with Chinese governments in traditional Chinese medicine, and carry out cooperation in TCM medical cooperation, TCM education cooperation and TCM scientific research. Through the analysis of the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine's "Summary of the signing of the agreement between Chinese and medicine double (multi) side agreements", it has been learned that since the 1990s, the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine has signed cooperation with Chinese or foreign organizations. There are 83 agreements. Among them, hot-spot cooperation areas include: cooperation in research and development of Chinese medicine, cooperation in research and development of drugs and medical equipment, establishment of cooperation in traditional medical research and treatment institutions, cooperation in education and training, technical cooperation, industrial and trade cooperation, and promotion and cooperation of Chinese medicine culture. China has the largest number of agreements with countries in Asia and Europe, and is the region with the greatest potential for international cooperation in Chinese medicine.

 

Third, expand the cooperation and exchanges between Chinese medicine practitioners in various countries. It is reported that the Chinese medicine research institutions in Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and other provinces have signed 73 Chinese medicine cooperation agreements with Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, France, Austria, Russia and other countries. The prospects for cooperation are generally optimistic.

 

In addition, the establishment of a national traditional medicine cooperation mechanism, focusing on the trade of Chinese medicine products and services. Specifically, Huang Zhenhui suggested that it is possible to coordinate the resources and strengths of various countries through the combination of government guidance and market operations, actively support and encourage Chinese medicine enterprises to establish research bases and marketing networks overseas, and strengthen the construction of international distribution networks for Chinese medicine products logistics. We will hold product promotion conferences, investment associations and exhibitions, rely on intermediary organizations such as chambers of commerce and associations, implement export agents and other means to expand the trade of Chinese medicines and expand the foreign Chinese medicine market.

 

Finally, the joint efforts of all countries to develop and promote international standards for traditional Chinese medicine and traditional medicine, and to carry out traditional medicine intellectual property protection cooperation. Huang Zhenhui believes that promoting the joint development and formulation of traditional medicine-related standards, taking the lead in advocating the formulation of unified traditional medical standards, establishing an international standardization information exchange channel for traditional medicine, and promoting the establishment of an international certification and accreditation system for traditional medicine. Guide the establishment of international medicine, health care, education, research and development and production that can be accepted and recognized by the international community, suitable for the characteristics of Chinese medicine and the specific conditions of each country (region), including disease diagnosis, treatment methods, efficacy evaluation, quality control, etc. Standards and specifications.

 

In the past 15 years, as the essence and representative of Chinese traditional culture, the pace of Chinese medicine to the world is accelerating: Recently, the first Chinese-supported Chinese medicine center in Central and Eastern Europe was established. Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong and Czech Deputy Prime Minister, World Health The Director-General of the organization attended the unveiling ceremony together; with the support of the Ministry of Finance of China, the Chinese Medicine Bureau set up the first batch of 17 international cooperation projects for Chinese medicine in 15 years; the International Conference on Acupuncture and Moxibustion, the Foreign Affairs and Experience Center of the Huangguo National Medical Center and other projects accelerated implementation.
