Q. Brazil is one of the fastest rising medical device producers in the world, how do you see Brazilian companies expanding their business footprint in Southeast Asia in terms of export and also knowledge-sharing?
ABIMO: Brazil steps firmly on its position as a global player in medical equipment and healthcare. The competitiveness of the industry drives the market and it has been leveraged by investments in innovation and also by actions that focus on a production with international quality.
Our industry is able to provide 95% of any hospital demands, and it has been growing stronger over the last decades. It is also important to add that due to our high flexibility, Brazilian industry has a great ability to adapt to any system to be found in the world.
Healthcare demand in Southeast Asia is increasing rapidly; driven by population growth rates. For the Brazilian medical manufacturers, it is an important opportunity to make our brand more visible, to build a qualified database of potential clients and establish strategic partnerships.
Q. What is ABIMO’s objective for participating at MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2019? How important are trade shows such as MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND for exhibiting companies and associations like ABIMO in the wider Southeast Asian healthcare market?
