  • Senior Care Study Tour to Yichang, Hubei Province, China

October 13-16, 2016

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Chinese government are preparing an ambitious senior care development plan in parallel with China’s 13th Five-Year Plan in Yichang worth over $250 million. This Senior Care Study Tour gives companies a “first look” opportunity to orient their businesses with one of the largest senior care development initiatives underway in China to address the Silver Tsunami, aka China’s rapidly aging population.

The Study Tour (October 13-16) will immediately follow Care Expo (Shanghai, October 11-12), China’s largest aged-care multinational B2B conference/expo. The tour will explore the Elderly Care Public-Private Partnership Pilot Project in Yichang, Hubei province, China, which local government agencies and ADB are organizing to promote significant investment into Yichang’s aged-care program through the re-development and modernization of its city-wide senior care system. Development plans include over 1,500 beds in aged-care facilities (acute care, assisted living, cognitive care, home-based care), nurse and health aide training programs, and the acquisition of significant assistive technologies. The U.S. Department of Commerce / Commercial Service office in Shanghai and the U.S. Department of Commerce / ADB Liaison Office are coordinating with CareExpo and ADB to help U.S. companies take advantage of ADB-related opportunities.
