USRCCNE and MassMEDIC Team Up on Med. Devices
On July 24, MassMEDIC and USRCCNE co-sponsored a discussion of the medical device market in Russia. The featured speaker was Robert Rosen, former Chairman of the International Medical Device Manufactures Association (iMeda), which is headquartered in Moscow. Mr. Rosen outlined the growing market for foreign producers of high quality medical instruments in the Russian market and encouraged Massachusetts companies to investigate Russia as a destination for incremental sales.
The export of medical devices is an important part of the Massachusetts economy, accounting for around 10% of total export income. MassMEDIC is the leading industry association for the medical products industry in Massachusetts. The presentation drew a relatively large audience with over 50 people registered, even though the event took place early on a Thursday morning in the midst of the traditional holiday vacation season.
The companies that attended paid close attention to Mr. Rosen’s presentation and there was a lively question and answer period after the formal presentation. Companies that are interested in the Russian market and want a broad introduction are encouraged to look into the Exhibition in Moscow, Zdravookhraneniye' (Healthcare) 2008, the 18th International Exhibition for Health Care, Medical Engineering and Pharmaceuticals, held from December 8 through 12, 2008.
