of Traditional Chinese medicine, and wrote the development of TCM into the
National Constitution, also enacted the administrative regulations and a
series of policies. Especially in recent years, our party and the country
have paid more and more attention to and put more support on the development
of TCM. Opinions on Deepening Reform of Medicine and Health made by
the CPC Central Committee and the State Council
particularly emphasizes the role of the national Chinese medicine during the
health care reform. The State Council issued a special file called
Several Opinions about Supporting and Promoting the Development of
Traditional Chinese Medicine. It was the first matching file of health
care reform. The legislative program of Traditional Chinese Medicine has
entered the final stage, it will come out soon.
our province issued the document The Five-Year Action Plan about Hunan
Province to Speed up the Development of Traditional Chinese Medicine; it
also put forward a series of important measures to accelerate the
development of Traditional Chinese Medicine. During the "Twelfth Five-Year"
period, the Country will spare no efforts to promote the integration of the
development of Traditional Chinese Medicine including health care, research,
education, industry, culture. Large number of Traditional Chinese Medicine
projects will be fulfilled. There will be a lot of money invested in the

Zhongfang County as the youngest county in Hunan Province, your TCM team has
been concentrating on studying and carrying forward TCM, and has provided
satisfactory Chinese medicine treatment and teaching services for more than
one thousand patients with chronic difficult diseases as well as TCM
enthusiasts from dozens of countries in the world. It has made important
contributions to safeguarding people's health and inheriting cultural
heritage of TCM.
rapid development of TCM, TCM exchanges are more and more frequent in the
world. The world medical field highly admires the following features of TCM,
such as personal syndrome identification and treatment determination,
balancing principle of treatment and prevention, human-friendly therapeutic
methods, multiple ways of solution, natural medications, etc. More and more
people tend to love TCM. The TCM upsurge is coming into being
international TCM Forum held in Zhongfang County is building a good platform
for the international exchange and cooperation of TCM in Hunan province. I
believe under the support of this platform, more foreign friends will
experience and feel the exact efficacy and the unique charm of TCM. The TCM
road to go abroad, to the world must be better and smoother.
hope that Zhongfang County adheres to an open, inclusive philosophy, and
focus on its own characteristics to hold a high-standard, unique, and
influential Zhongfang International TCM Forum. I also hope that Zhongfang
