Recently, the Department of Commerce of Zhejiang Province and other seven departments deliberated and announced the construction list of 37 "service trade development bases in Zhejiang Province", and Wenzhou Medical University’s traditional Chinese medicine service import and export base was included in the list of "demonstration bases" for the development of service trade.
With a history of more than 50 years of traditional Chinese medicine education, WMU has done a good job in training talents in traditional Chinese medicine. The passing rate of students in the National Medical Practitioner Qualification Examination has been at the forefront of the country for a long time and ranked first nationally for three consecutive years from 2015 to 2017. In recent years, WMU has made fruitful achievements in scientific research in the field of traditional Chinese medicine and continuously improved its clinical service capacity. It has set up traditional Chinese medicine education and training bases at the Confucius Institutes in the United States and Thailand, exerting a positive effect on the output of traditional Chinese medicine culture and its industrialization. Being selected as the demonstration base will continue to promote WMU's services trade in international traditional Chinese medicine education, traditional Chinese medicine health services, traditional Chinese medicine import and export services, and traditional Chinese medicine culture promotion, thus contributing WMU’s wisdom and strength to the "going global" of traditional Chinese medicine.
It is known that the approval of “service trade development bases in Zhejiang province” is an important measure to promote high-quality development of services trade and the digital transformation and to build a high-level platform for service trade development in the new era. The traditional Chinese medicine service import and export base featuring the exports of traditional Chinese medicine-related medical treatment, education and training, scientific research, industry, and cultural aims to promote the innovative development of traditional Chinese medicine services trade in Zhejiang Province and improve the structure of services trade in Zhejiang Province.
