The Group is also accelerating the development of a cloud technology-based Chinese medicine platform “TDMall on Cloud” to provide services such as online intelligent consultation, online medical treatment and comprehensive health e-commerce to the public. Together, this online initiative and the physical TDMalls will help to develop “TDMall” into the leading brand of Chinese medical clinic.
The Group has continued to increase innovation and R&D efforts, with steady progress made in the development of Classic Ancient Prescriptions, cardio-cerebrovascular drugs, pediatric drugs, and diabetes drugs, etc. Meanwhile, BD initiatives have been increased as well to integrate organically with R&D activities to improve the quality and quantity of R&D projects in its pipeline through the external introduction, independent and collaborative R&D. This is to further enrich the product lines while identifying cutting-edge technologies and product opportunities globally, so as to help grow the Group’s business on the whole.
China has proposed in the “14th Five-Year Plan and the Long-Range Objectives Through the Year 2035” to promote the inheritance and innovation of TCM, to emphasize on the equal importance and complementary advantages of Chinese and Western medicine, and to vigorously develop the Chinese medicine business, providing favorable policy support for the Group’s business development. The Group will continue to implement the “Three Developments” strategy, deepening the layout of all three business segments and actively evaluating merger and acquisition opportunities to accelerate the pace of business growth and scale expansion, so as to strive to become a leading pharmaceutical enterprise that sets its footholds in China while expanding its presence worldwide to make a greater contribution to safeguarding the health of mankind.
