CSL Welcomes China Entrepreneur Club Delegation

Melbourne, Australia — 04/12/2014

CSL Limited (ASX:CSL) today welcomed a delegation from the China Entrepreneur Club (CEC), the premier business leader platform in China, to their Broadmeadows site in Melbourne. The visit provided an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences and explore collaborative opportunities. 

Professor John Shine AO, Chairman of CSL, together with other members of CSL’s senior management team, hosted the delegation which was led by Mr. Ma Weihua, Executive Chairman of the CEC and former President of China Merchants Bank. 

The program included a number of discussions focused on the overall development of the biopharmaceutical industry, with particular focus on the importance of scientific, clinical and technical innovation in the plasma products sector. CSL shared insights on its R&D strategy and the latest significant developments in biotherapy treatments. 

Professor John Shine said: “We are honoured to have hosted this distinguished delegation of Chinese entrepreneurs from the CEC at our plasma manufacturing site here in Australia. With the imminent completion of the Free Trade Agreement between Australia and China, our nations can continue to build on opportunities for growth and investment, particularly in healthcare. To this end, the delegation visit by the CEC is an excellent forum to help foster greater understanding and cooperation between Chinese and Australian businesses across a range of different sectors.” 

CSL Behring has been in China since 1997 and is now the leading supplier of imported albumin, a life-saving product derived from human plasma which is used in treating burns and restoring blood volume after trauma or surgery. 

“We are delighted to have had the opportunity to meet with a leading global provider of innovative treatments for people with rare and serious diseases and understand their advanced technologies. We hope this visit will help to open up communication between CSL and more Chinese entrepreneurs and lay the foundation for potential investment and collaborative opportunities in the future,” said Ma Weihua, Head of the CEC Delegation.
