Asia Summit on Global Health (ASGH)

HKTDC cordially invited our members to attend the Asia Summit on Global Health (ASGH) on 10-11 November 2022 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The evolving challenges brought by the pandemic have underlined the urgency for concerted efforts in bolstering global health and the need for innovation to shape a more sustainable future. In Asia, the tremendous demand for healthcare coupled with its emerging role as a vibrant innovation hub points to the region’s growing significance in the global health landscape.

The inaugural Summit was successfully concluded last November. It featured over 70 internationally renowned speakers and attracted more than 21,000 onsite and online participants from 54 countries and regions. Over 200 one-to-one meetings matching investors with global healthcare projects were arranged.

Riding on its success, the second Asia Summit on Global Health organised in hybrid format and extended to a two-day event on 10-11 November 2022 in Hong Kong, bought together all stakeholders - from policymakers to healthcare experts to renowned academia and influential business leaders, together with key industry players, innovative start-ups, and investors from around the world to exchange insights, explore opportunities and collaborate on the diverse and dynamic healthcare sector.

Themed “Charting a New Course in Healthcare through Collaboration”, the Summit will comprise a high-level symposium covering a wide range of topics from global health issues, policy dialogue on the future of public health, healthcare innovation to business opportunities in Asia. A series of thematic tracks focusing on the latest trends in different medical sectors, project pitching as well as deal flow matchmaking sessions will be organised to facilitate business discussions and investment partnerships. InnoHealth Showcase, a dedicated exhibition area showcasing global healthcare projects and technologies will be launched alongside the Summit.

Coinciding with this year’s Summit, the inaugural “International Healthcare Week” also organised to bring together a wide array of healthcare related events in Hong Kong, creating synergy in global partnership in healthcare leveraging Hong Kong’s role as an innovation and investment hub for the sector in Asia. As anchor events under the Week, the Asia Summit on Global Health and HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair staged concurrently to highlight Hong Kong's strengths in the healthcare sector.
