Friends of Summit (2) | Seminar - Regulatory Insights: Navigating the Landscape of Life Sciences and Health Care after Expansion of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)

Along with the influx of foreign capital, CFIUS has taken a series of tough measures in recent years. In his talk, Mr. Ji illustrated his viewpoints by making the cross-border investment with the expansion of CFIUS power and covered areas.


Mr. Ji addressed that CFIUS is an elusive problem for investing and merging in the U.S. because of the continuous expansion of the review power, the great discretionary power, the prolonged reviewing circle, and the review method to “discuss each case independently”. Therefore, companies should design a reasonable investment structure with lawyers since the very beginning of investment, properly deal with the interaction with CFIUS, and manage the legal risks that may arise in the investment process.

Seminar - Evolution: How Emerging Consumer Expectations and Novel Care Models are Catalyzing a U.S. Healthcare Renaissance"

Dr. Munk addressed that the stagnant healthcare system, the worsening burden of illness, increasing cost and evolving consumer expectations have created much pressure on the U.S. healthcare system. In response, new care models are evolving to provide better and more cost-effective care. These models are disrupting the landscape of the healthcare system and challenging the traditional model of delivering primary care. It is also observed that these new entrants share seven common characteristics: moving upstream, segmenting patient populations, encouraging virtual interlining; adopting risk-based payment structure, occupying space between illness, involving physicians in care teams, and creating new relationships with patients. In his talk, Dr. Munk illustrated his viewpoints with vivid examples and emphasized his optimism for a change and transition in the U.S. healthcare system.
