|CANBERRA M.J. Stewart Buccaneers 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 Lorenzo Carter Bengals 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 Leighton Vander Esch Cowboys 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."
PARIS Lamar Jackson Ravens Jersey , Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- The two main suspects of the armed attack at the headquarters of the Paris-based Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly were still at large so far, after an intensive search operation finished in the Picardie region northeast of Paris.
France has deployed tens of thousands of troops in the hunt for the two brothers, Cherif Kouachi, 32, and his 34-year-old brother Said, accused of killing 10 journalists and two policemen on Wednesday morning at the offices of Charlie Hebdo.
The manhunt came as the head of Britain's domestic spy agency MI5 warned that Islamist militants were planning other "mass casualty attacks against the West" Kyle Lauletta Patriots Jersey , and that intelligence services may be powerless to stop them.
In the rural Aisne region of Picardie, elite armed police and paramilitary forces backed by helicopters searched a wooded area near which the fugitives had earlier robbed a petrol station and abandoned their getaway car following Wednesday's shooting in the capital.
According to the French television BFMTV, one of its journalists witnessed the departure of police vehicles from the area searched on Thursday night. However, police presence is maintained there to deal with any eventuality.
The brothers were thought to have carried out the deadliest attack since 1995, in revenge for the weekly's repeated publication of cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammed.
Charlie Hebdo, which is based in Paris' 11th arrondissement Kolton Miller Raiders Jersey , was firebombed in 2011, due to the publishing of a controversial series of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed.
In its last published cartoons, the weekly mocked Abu Bakr al- Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State, which seized major towns in Iraq and Syria.
One of the three suspects, 18-year-old Hamyd Mourad Kerryon Johnson Lions Jersey , turned himself in to police late on Wednesday.
According to reports, Cherif Kouachi had previously been tried on terrorism charges and served 18 months in prison.
France increased on Thursday its security alert system, Vigipirat, to attack alert in its northern region of Picardie.
Meanwhile, police patrols and security have been reinforced at public places including major stores, religious centers and public transportation systems.
On Thursday night Kemoko Turay Colts Jersey , French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said during a press conference that nine people were put in custody as part of the investigation into Charlie Hebdo attack.
Meanwhile, the international community has strongly condemned the terror attack by all means, including holding demonstrations and protests.
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday sent a message of condolences to his French counterpart, Francois Hollande, and strongly condemned the terror attack.
Terrorism is a common enemy of all mankind and a common threat to the entire international community, including both China and France Justin Reid Packers Jersey , Xi said.
China is firmly opposed to all forms of terrorism, and stands ready to work with France and other countries to boost security and counter-terrorism cooperation so as to safeguard world peace and protect the people of all countries in the world, he added.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday that the "international jihadists" had declared war on countries around the world, but people would not be intimidated by "jihadist terrorists."
"We're just going to have to face that head on and deal with it. And that's what our government is committed to do," Harper said, warning that Canadians are not immune from terrorist thre.
