In 2017, Fosun accomplished evolutionary upgrades of its strategies, with its vision of “Centered around Family, Deeply Rooted in China, Innovating a Global Happiness Ecosystem”. To pursue the goal, Fosun will not only continue to implement the “Combining China’s Growth Momentum with Global Resources” strategy to seek for more investment opportunities, but also will be more active in enhancement of product competitiveness, effective implementation of C2M (Customer-to-Maker) strategy, improvement of operational capacity, and more emphasis on technology-led accomplishment.
Fosun is honored to be named as the “Best Investment Management Company in Asia” by the Global Banking & Finance Review Magazine, which fully reflects the market recognition for the effectiveness of Fosun’s evolving strategy, and recognizes Fosun’s commitment to providing global families with quality products and services. Fosun is now focusing on the demand of families as its core driver, while increasing its investment in technology, research and development, as well as innovative projects like artificial intelligence, etc. Taking the healthcare industry as an example, Fosun has set up a R&D laboratory in the Silicon Valley, United States eight years ago. The laboratory has now become a global leader in various fields including monoclonal antibodies and small molecule pharmaceuticals, and is expecting a series of new drugs to be launched in the next two years. In addition, Fosun formed joint ventures with Intuitive Surgical and Kite Pharma in Shanghai respectively, to introduce a new generation of Da Vinci surgical robots and a brand-new Car-T cell immunotherapy, which will significantly improve the treatments for specific diseases.
Fosun has stayed true to its mission. It continues to actively fulfill its corporate social responsibility while supporting the global economic growth. On the last working day of 2017, with the support from the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the PRC, Fosun has initiated a “Rural Doctors” Program targeting poverty reduction. The Company plans to invest RMB300 million to cover 100 deprived counties across the country in the coming 10 years, by providing medical devices and equipment, offering professional training to rural doctors through various channels, providing critical illness insurance for rural doctors and underprivileged children, establishing a green referral pathway for underprivileged communities and offering fee reductions/waivers to needy patients. As such, it is expected that rural doctors can better treat and cure the people in needs.
It has always been Fosun’s key vision to make a better world and bring more happiness into the lives of families. Looking forward, Fosun will continue to work diligently and intelligently, and make stable yet bold progress towards the bright future.
