The two-day 16th World Congress of traditional Chinese Medicine and "Belt and Road Initiative" academic Exchange of traditional Chinese Medicine closed on the 9th in Budapest, Hungary. Nearly 800 representatives of the Chinese medicine industry from more than 30 countries and regions attended the meeting. At the venue, the reporter felt that the influence of traditional Chinese medicine culture in Hungary, where the conference was held, was constantly increasing.
Chen Zhen, president of traditional Chinese medicine in Central and Eastern Europe and chairman of the Hungarian Oriental Pharmaceutical Group, who came to Hungary 30 years ago to promote traditional Chinese medicine, witnessed the gradual increase in the influence of traditional Chinese medicine in Hungary. He told reporters: "at present, the Hungarian people have a higher and higher recognition of traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine has taken root in Hungary and has become a characteristic business card for exchanges and cooperation between China and Hungary."
The governments of China and Hungary signed a letter of intent on cooperation in the field of traditional Chinese medicine in 2014. In August of the same year, the first Confucius Institute of traditional Chinese Medicine in Central and Eastern Europe was settled at Page University in Hungary. In 2015, the Hungarian Ministry of Human Resources promulgated relevant regulations on the qualification of practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, laying a legal foundation for the legal practice of traditional Chinese medicine in Hungary.
"traditional Chinese medicine already has a good mass base in Hungary, and the successful holding of the World Congress of traditional Chinese Medicine in Hungary will further enhance the influence of traditional Chinese medicine in Hungary and even in Central and Eastern Europe as a whole." Chen Zhen said excitedly.
In an interview with reporters at the scene of the World Congress of traditional Chinese Medicine, Hungarian traditional Chinese medicine enthusiast Miklos Galvoi said that the conference has further improved his recognition of traditional Chinese medicine and believes that traditional Chinese medicine will play a greater role in Hungary.
During the World Congress of traditional Chinese Medicine, the licensing ceremony of the construction and promotion base of the international standard of traditional Chinese medicine and the international release ceremony of the new teaching materials for the core courses of traditional Chinese medicine were also held. Participants believed that standardization would speed up the promotion of traditional Chinese medicine overseas.
According to Li Zhanyong, deputy editor-in-chief of the China traditional Chinese Medicine Publishing House, the core course materials for traditional Chinese medicine in the world include 14 volumes in Chinese and 14 in English, which are published by the China traditional Chinese Medicine Publishing House. This paper focuses on the prevention and treatment of diseases which are common in foreign countries and have curative effect of traditional Chinese medicine.
Li Zhanyong said: "the publication and distribution of this set of teaching materials is conducive to the comprehensive, systematic and accurate dissemination of traditional Chinese medicine to the world, as well as the training of Chinese medicine talents all over the world, so as to better promote the development of traditional Chinese medicine overseas."
Ni Rong, president of the Internet Health Industry of the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies, also talked about standardization in an interview with reporters. He believes that Chinese medicine practitioners should give up their views and share the precious wealth left behind by their ancestors.
Ni Rong said: "in the Internet age, we should have the concept of intelligent Chinese medicine. We should share data and resources and break through the walls of systematic data, so that administrative departments, scientific and technological enterprises, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners and the people can all benefit from intelligent traditional Chinese medicine. So as to realize the win-win situation of the whole ecology of traditional Chinese medicine. "
For Chinese medicine practitioners, an inextricable problem is the relationship between traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine. In this regard, Zhang Dechao, a licensed acupuncture doctor in New York who attended the World Congress of traditional Chinese Medicine, said: "the two have their own strengths, they must complement each other, and it is wrong to emphasize either one alone."
