But the country's developing industrial and technological strengths should be seen as an opportunity by countries whose medtech industries have traditionally set a strong, and world-leading example. A recent UK DTI Global Watch Mission aimed to illustrate just that for UK companies, by providing contacts and knowledge to help ensure that China's ambitions represent an opportunity for collaboration rather than a threat to future business.
