Bayer has been keeping pace with the Chinese government, actively providing integrated solutions for prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and helping to combat the COVID-19 pandemic with practical action since the outbreak.

Bayer has been taking comprehensive measures to resume work in an orderly manner, reducing the negative impact on production and the supply chain, and striving to ensure business continuity so as to provide products that are urgently needed by patients, consumers and growers and at the same time doing its best to protect the safety of its employees.

Bayer highly appreciates supporting policies presented by the Chinese government for stabilizing foreign investment and foreign trade, as well as the determination of the Chinese government to continue reform and opening-up.

Bayer believes that in the upcoming year and for long-term future development, health care and agriculture will continue to occupy a crucial position, and it stands ready to make contributions to improve people’s health and nutrition through innovation and cooperation based on experience accumulated in China.

As more people are realizing the significance of improving their immune system and place emphasis on active prevention rather than passive medical treatment, Bayer will continue to provide Chinese consumers with leading over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements and other self-care solutions.

It also seeks to further cooperate with the government and industrial organizations to popularize scientific knowhow, besides remaining committed to promoting public awareness of self-care, and to offer more health-related education to Chinese consumers.

In agriculture, Bayer will continue to respond to the state’s call and best utilize its innovative advantages to help building an overall moderately prosperous society.

Bayer is committed to promoting scientific and technological plant protection to vigorously prevent and control major diseases and insect pests, and at the same time further develop integrated solutions of “Bayer Much More” to field crops and “Bayer Much Better” to horticulture crops tailored for the Chinese market.
