For a long time, China is regarded as the country with the most recognizable rate of continuous development. This fact is an indicator of economic growth, obviously, but in another way it also gave us clues against chances embedded deeply in the national policy of China.
As is officially defined, China is a developing country. One may point out that China has already achieved a great number of gorgeous milestones, like taking precedence over Japan to become the second largest economic body in the world, etc. True indeed, but he is not thinking in the way decision makers thinks.
Common people see achievements while great people see prospects. In the eyes of the policymakers, this achievement is then an indicator of the unlimited potential of China. Thus they will then try to make the similar miracles happen-not only in the field of economy, but also in education, sustainable development, and even family planning. It is observable that in the future not so far from now, such fields will be the top fields supported by the government.
A simple analysis reveals the potential of the biomedical industry in China. China has the best medical system in the world, if we evaluate them by the ratio of efficiency versus efficiency. A common experienced doctor earns about $800 per month while their American counterparts earn $9000 a month with a ten-fold less workload.
This situation cannot last long for the overall salary of Chinese workers is growing fast, thus creating much more need for better healthcare system. Overflowing work pressure and inconsistently low salary will then make prospecting students not to choose medical majors, which will create a gap in medical worker supply for a long period in the future, which absolutely cannot be tolerated by the government.
In response to this, what would the government do? First, the shortage of medical workers is already observed and confirmed by numerous researches. To put some relief to this, most possibly the government would support the development of medical devices which can partially replace human resources for, as an example, long term healthcare and health monitoring. Moreover, the government would possibly try to find resources outside of the system. Can someone imagine a bunch of privately-funded hospitals, care centers and community clinics, all supported by the government, as members of a group corporation like Walmart? Probably this will be the next billionaire business.
In this regime, life in China is deeply connected with national policy. In a word, get on the train now or to be left behind.
