|CANBERRA Jhonny Peralta Jersey , Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese investment in Australia's healthcare system has soared past 5.5 billion Australian dollars (4.4 billion U.S. dollars), a report has found.
The report, released by global professional service company KPMG on Tuesday, revealed that China's total investment in the sector has occurred since 2015.
It found that investments had been concentrated in health supplement and medical treatment sectors with no significant investment in aged care, biotechnology or pharmaceuticals to date.
According to the report, 2.06 billion U.S. dollars was invested in 2015 followed by 1.09 billion in 2016 and 1.27 billion in 2017 across 16 deals.
The 1.2 billion U.S. dollars acquisition of Swisse Wellness by Biostime across 2015 and 2016 was the largest single investment followed by Luye Medicel Group's 750 million U.S. dollars acquisition of hospital operator Healthe Care.
Doug Ferguson Mike Matheny Jersey , head of Asia and International Markets at KPMG and co-author of the report, said that Chinese companies were seeking the "complete Australian package."
"Chinese investors have really shifted their investment interests to Australia's hi-tech, high quality health products and services sector in the last three years," Ferguson told Xinhua on Tuesday.
"Rather than general health services, many Chinese companies seek to invest in specialist services, such as oncology Brett Cecil Jersey , radiology, ophthalmology, in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and aged care.
"These services are replicable in the Chinese market and customised to fit the specific needs of China's middle-to-high end consumer markets. Australian healthcare brands have an initial advantage in China due to their reputation for high quality products with consumers."
He said that despite a slight drop-off in investment between 2015 and 2016 there was still plenty of room for investment growth in the sector.
"China's healthcare spending is expected to grow by 8.1 percent annually over the next five years, representing a big opportunity for Australia's health sector," Ferguson said.
"The report predicts that investment will broaden across all sectors in the short-to-medium term. The patterns that have emerged in Chinese healthcare investment so far will likely strengthen in the coming years as healthcare assets become a key component of many Chinese investors' portfolios."
Would you ever own up to wanting to stay in to watch TV Carlos Martinez Jersey , instead of meeting friends in a pub? Sad as it might sound, it's a dilemma that we've probably all faced at some point.
It got me to thinking about how many pubs have TVs these days ? the Plasma TV Takeover. But why is it that they're only ever used for sport? It gives men and diehard team supporters an unfair advantage. They never have to choose between TV and socialising, in fact going out to 'watch the match' seems to form a key part of their social calendar.
Last week I vacated a bar pretty quickly when a 'big' match loomed onto Plasma TV screens around the room, followed by a (distinctly male) roar of approval. So, what would be the problem with showing EastEnders, or Desperate Housewives on a pub TV?
The argument might be that it would put off clients who didn't want to watch that particular programme. Fair point. Except surely this is just as true for football matches? On any given Saturday afternoon Kolten Wong Jersey , there's a choice of pubs showing different sporting events. If you don't want to watch it, you don't go in. This seems to be acceptable for sport, so, why not for TV shows?
Yes, going out is essentially a social activity, whilst watching TV is more passive. But Randal Grichuk Jersey , are groups of blokes 'oohing' and 'ahhing' over a missed goal, that sociable either? Would soap operas screened in pubs put off a male clientele? Possibly. But, surely no more so than football puts off many women.
It would be quite nice to bitch about the contestants on America's Next Top Model or Britain's Got Talent (?) over a glass of Pinot with friends. Admittedly, since many shows are screened more than once, it might be argued that there's no need to show TV in pubs. But, it would be fun. Pub screens could show so much more than the noiseless satellite TV news that fills time between sporting events.
Since this idea crept in Jedd Gyorko Jersey , I've noticed plasma TV screens everywhere, used primarily for displaying random information, that's of no real significance, or interest to any one. So, why not show comedy in GP's waiting rooms, to cheer everyone up during the inevitable backlog of appointments? Screen The Apprentice in office lobbies where potential interviewees wait. Surely school children would be more engaged if Plasma screens in the corridors beamed in MTV during breaks Cardinals Willie McGee Jersey , rather than the slideshow of a trip that only 10 pupils went on?
The argument for showing TV in pubs is based around some sense that football is of national interest. Perhaps it is, but there are many (believe me) who have no interest in the 'glorious game'. However, if you surveyed homes around the country you'd probably find that the latest series of Dr Who is of equal national interest. So, why not screen that every Saturday in pubs around the country?
The first pub to do this would probably make a fortune?
I also toy with the idea to buy a cheap plasma TV for my home!
History is strewn with redundancy and ruin. Though some falls from power are more graceful than others, there is something to be learned from each one. Here are a selection of great collapses to entertain and inform.
Mussolini is overthrown
Ousted from power and arrested in the summer of 1943, Mussolini discovered that his enforced redundancy policy offered no protection Cardinals Bob Gibson Jersey , benefits or future within politics whatsoever. Liberated by Nazi Germany, maintained as a puppet ruler to keep fascis.
