Bridgetech, Medtronic, and Chindex Target Asian Healthcare and Medical Technology Markets

POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2006 -- (CAS), an investor and industry news portal for the China-Asia sector, provides an overview of "China's Healthcare Industry Opportunities." Most North American medical firms are currently facing a slowdown and a mature market in developed countries. In contrast, many Chinese medical companies and companies doing business in China are realizing their highest growth rates. Companies participating in the medical and healthcare business: Bridgetech Holdings International, Medtronic, and Chindex, exhibit confidence in the markets moving forward.

Bridgetech Holdings International, Inc. (OTC: BGTH) is capitalizing on China's demand for Western Healthcare by establishing itself as the leader in the transfer of Western technology to China. Michael Chermak, CEO and President of Bridgetech commented, "The healthcare industry is just 4% of China's GDP. This compares with over 14% in the US. The annual growth rate over the last 5 years has been between 12%-15%. It is the fastest growing sector of China's economy."

Medtronic (NYSE: MDT) has also committed significant resources to building infrastructure in China. According to Yvan Deurbroeck, Senior Director International PR and Communication at Medtronic, "Medtronic therapies can benefit millions of patients in China. The potential is tremendous." Lawrence Pemble, Executive Vice President of Chindex (NASDAQ: CHDX), a leading independent American provider of Western healthcare products and services in China, has similar opinions, "Chindex believes that the potential market for foreign manufactured medical devices and international-standard healthcare services in China has never been greater."
