Traditional Chinese Medicine is gaining popularity around the world, with concerted efforts needed to promote TCM globally, experts and academics said at an international symposium in the Thai capital Bangkok.
More than 100 academics from 20 countries and regions participated in the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) 2023 International Acupuncture-Moxibustion Symposium, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
At the symposium, experts and academics shared their latest research findings and discussed strategies to promote TCM for the benefit of people in need around the world.
TCM, especially Chinese acupuncture, has become widely accepted and practiced around the world in recent years and more people have recognized its value and benefits. However, the development of TCM at the global level still faces challenges, and concerted efforts are needed to promote its internationalization and modernization, said Wu Yiling, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
