As the co-organizing party of the seminar, Beijing Xingchen Hospital of Chinese Medicine received recognition and great comments from Jin and 20 other experts from the industry. The participants also visited the hospital's manufacturing laboratory after the seminar, and they were impressed with the level of advancements.

As a unique medical resource, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) holds big potential for people's welfare and the development of the country's economy.

TCM has always been a popular choice among the Chinese people and it is also gaining recognition overseas. However, the development of TCM also has its barriers. The industry lacks high-level professional workers, and there are not enough innovations in the industry. There is also the problem that the wild herbal Chinese medicinal materials are damaged for lack of regulation, and the overall quality of medicinal materials is low.

As for the international development, TCM is facing certain restrictions and barriers to go into some countries and be accepted there.

In order to change that and promote the development of TCM, Beijing Xingchen Hospital of Chinese Medicine was founded and it started to accept patients in October 2016.

The hospital is located in Miyun district, Beijing. About 75 percent of Miyun county is covered by forests and the air quality in Miyun is much better than downtown Beijing, which provides a good rest and recovery environment for the patients.

The hospital covers 6,000 square meters. The hospital has many different departments including an internal medicine department, dermatological department and oncology department, and the hospital also gathers many high-level professional medical workers, which helps guarantee good medical service.

To make it more convenient for the patients, the hospital made good use of the Internet, allowing patients to make appointments, pay fees and see their medical results online.

The hospital also made it its own target to take TCM further overseas. Under the initiative of the One Belt and One Road initiative, the hospital plans to increase their investments overseas by opening TCM hospitals and chain clinics overseas and launch a Chinese medicine tourism service to those traveling from overseas.

"It's important to promote the development of TCM both in China and overseas, and I am glad our hospital can be a part of that," Du said.
