Today, the United States accounts for more than $2 trillion in sales of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other life sciences products and services. Although many Chinese companies have been doing business in the United States for some time, their activities generally have involved the sale of pharmaceutical ingredients, components, and contract research services to companies in the United States.
