The difference between CMS' industrial investment model and VIC model is that the leading party of VIC model is the capital, whose understanding of the industry and contribution to product innovation is very limited. In contrast, CMS' industrial investment is a more advanced version of the VIC model, in which the leading party is CMS. With accumulated resources in the industry for a long time and deeper understanding of products, CMS is more capable of promoting the R&D and commercialization of innovative drugs, and is able to create a systematic, replicable and long-term competitive industrial investment model of innovative drugs. CMS will also build a highly competitive barrier for itself in the industry, and with the maturing of the platform ecology, its business will be expanded and the business potential will be unleashed continuously.
