With such a large quantity of booths present at the Vietnam Medipharm Expo, plenty of cutting-edge medical equipment, high-quality pharmaceuticals, and a wide range of health care products can be seen on display.
Most notably, an exhibition area set up by the Indonesian Embassy and the Indonesian Medical Device Producers Association made its debut at the event.
Nguyen Dinh Anh, head of the Emulation and Commendation Department under the Health Ministry, said that the international exhibition serves as an important trade promotion channel in which medical and pharmaceutical enterprises can co-operate.
In addition, local firms can join with international businesses to share their respective experiences, work to attract investment to the Vietnamese market, while simultaneously creating opportunities for domestic firms seeking partners and expanding into new markets throughout the globe, said Anh.
In order to facilitate the development of the country’s health sector whilst also supporting medical and pharmaceutical enterprises, the government of Vietnam and the Ministry of Health have issued legal documents aimed at creating a favourable legal corridor, improving the business investment environment as a way of improving the national competitiveness for enterprises.
A number of seminars and trade exchange programs are also planned during the event.
The Vietnam Medipharm Expo is scheduled to run until December 7 and is expected to welcome approximately 10,000 visitors.
