Barbara I think you have a good point here. I believe in China the traditional medicine and traditional method of curing people sill play an important part. How would medical electronics help in these cases ?

Hi Jenn: Interesting contrast to the McKinsey report cited by Anna, which is a little less optimisitc. I definitely think there has got to be a massive demand for medical and electronics coming out of China, but I'd be curious who is buying the equipment (the government? hospitals/doctors?) China's healthcare practices are different from ours, and I wonder if some of these reports measure the opportunity by our standards.
