EDITOR'S NOTE: It has been three years since the first edition of the China International Import Expo. This series of stories highlights the achievements and changes that participating enterprises have experienced because of the annual expo.

Buoyed by the positive impact of taking part in the China International Import Expo, US-based supplier of radiation cancer treatment Varian Medical Systems is expected to expand its manufacturing facility in Beijing to better serve the demands in the Chinese market, the company announced recently.

"Our participation in the CIIE over the past three years has reinforced our confidence in the Chinese market," said Zhang Xiao, Varian's vice president and head of Varian Greater China.

According to the company, the new expansion, which would be operational in July, will strengthen its R&D and talent cultivation capabilities in artificial intelligence, big data, and Internet of Things technologies, as well as boost export volume by 40 percent.

"We have introduced both advanced products and production lines to the Chinese market to better serve domestic customers," said Zhang.

Last year, the company displayed its ProBeam 360° Proton Therapy System, which features a powerful particle accelerator that can be used to treat cancer, at the third CIIE in Shanghai.

During the expo, Varian also signed an agreement to provide the proton therapy center of Wuhan Union Hospital in Hubei province with this system.

The company also credits the second edition of the CIIE for helping drive sales of its TrueBeam system, an advanced radiotherapy system integrating advanced imaging and motion management technologies.

"We see a promising future for China's economy and industrial chains and will increase investment in the domestic market to promote the globalization of the high-end medical equipment industrial chain in the country," said Zhang.
