These civilian versions will be able to carry out a wide range of operations, such as engage in land surveys, environmental inspections and maritime surveillance, he told China Daily.
Significant progress has been made in developing a system of medical and healthcare services. A basic medical services network covering both urban and rural areas has been put in place, with 980,000 medical and health institutions at all levels, 11 million health workers, and seven million beds at medical institutions. The state has increased its efforts to foster more medical professionals. A standardization training system for resident doctors is being established, and outstanding figures such as Nobel Prize laureate in Physiology or Medicine Tu Youyou have made significant contributions to society. As more social resources flow into the medical sector, private hospitals now account for over 57 percent of all hospitals, making medical services more diverse. China's medical and health emergency rescue capability is among the world's best. It stood the severe test of the Ebola epidemic, blocking all infectious sources from outside its territory and achieved zero infection while Chinese medical teams went on assistance missions in Africa.
Oversight of training quality will be reinforced and management of public services in a catalog list of programs will be introduced for professional skills training. And the performance evaluation system will be improved.
Such top-level interaction has helped boost global governance by bringing China's wisdom into play as anti-globalization ideas are spreading and trade protectionism is on the rise, Ruan said.
