BFA Steadily Advances Preparations for the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia
Origin:Boao Forum for Asia      Time:2018-12-17 20:25:30    Views:404

On Dec. 17, 2018, the BFA Secretariat and the Qingdao Municipal Government carried in-depth discussion on the preparatory work for the first Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia. The two sides considered that the current preparatory work was going in a smooth and orderly manner, and the safeguards were basically put in place.

The first Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia will be held in Qingdao next year by the BFA in concert with the World Health Organization. Margaret Chan Fung Fu-chun, the President of Global Health Forum of BFA and Emeritus Director-General of WHO, served as the chairperson of the conference. Not long ago, Margaret Chan presided over the Expert Meeting of the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia, inviting well-known experts in the global public health field to conduct in-depth discussions on the theme and issues of the conference. A broad consensus has been reached, laying a solid foundation for the subsequent preparations for the conference.

According to the person in charge of the Organizing Committee of the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia, the health and wellness industry shows increasingly prominent economic potential, and is one of the largest and fastest growing sunrise industries in the world. The BFA is committed to promoting Asian regional cooperation and global development, and has been closely following health and wellness issues related to economic development and people’s livelihood. The theme of the first Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia is “Internet Plus Age: Health for All”, mirroring the common aspirations of the region and the world in the field of health development.

When asked about the relationship between the “First Boao Health Industry Development Forum” held at the BFA International Forum Center in Hainan and the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia, the person in charge said that the BFA International Forum Center is an open Forum facility. Some organizations hold various conferences here, and some also attract investment in the name of Boao forum. These have no connection with the BFA. There are also a slew of forums and conferences in the health field recently, but the organization and level of the conferences are wholly different from those of the Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia.

The Global Health Forum of Boao Forum for Asia is a comprehensive platform for high-end dialogue and pragmatic cooperation between governments and businesses. The Forum will not only cooperate with international organizations such as the WHO, but also receive the full support of the relevant state health authorities. At that time, the Forum will be attended by nearly 2,000 participants, including the leaders in charge of health affairs or health ministers from many countries, heads of relevant international agencies and NGO, Nobel Prize winners in the field of medicine, famous entrepreneurs and researchers in related fields, and a variety of exhibitions and performances will be held.
