German Medical Technology Experts to Visit Philippines
Less than a month after the successful visit of President Aquino to Europe, a delegation of medical technology experts from Bavaria, Germany will arrive in the Philippines to engage in healthcare discussions and to present their innovative products and services to potential partners in the country.
Composed of seven companies, the “Bavarian Business Delegation – Medical Technology” will hold a conference and networking event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Casino in Manila on Oct. 7. The event is co-organized by Bayern International and the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GPCCI).
The arrival of the German business delegation reaffirms the continued growth in the bilateral ties between Germany and the Philippines and highlights the important role that chambers of commerce play. Such role was recognized by President Aquino in a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the former’s visit to Germany.
Following the joint press conference, Philippine Trade Secretary Gregory Domingo and Uwe Beckmeyer, Parliamentary State Secretary in the German Economics Ministry had a ceremonial exchange of notes which laid the foundation for the establishment of the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The formal exchange will take place in Manila.
President Aquino said he sees enhanced trade and investments especially among the German Mittelstand (SMEs) with the formal establishment of GPCCI. Most of the Bavarian delegation are Mittelstand.
With a strong foothold in the healthcare industry, Bavaria is considered a leading medical technology region in the world. Majority of medical technology products and devices in Germany and even around the globe are sourced from Bavaria, which hosts flagship companies and renowned research facilities in the medical field.
“The Philippines has an opportunity to become the healthcare gateway of Southeast Asia, with assets that are appealing to international companies. The conference and networking event will provide a significant groundwork between Germany and the Philippines to forge wider and deeper global ties, stimulating growth in the medical technology industry. We hope this will promote an ongoing conversation that will result in new opportunities for companies on both countries,” said Nadine Fund, GPCCI General Manager.
The seven companies from Bavaria included in the delegation are: EDV-Agentur, Funeralia
GmbH, medi GmbH & Co. KG, Medin – Medical Innovations GmbH, MIPM Mammendorfer Institut für Physik und Medizin GmbH, MMM Münchner Medizin Mechanik GmbH, and Shams X-Ray and Medical Equipment.
These companies offer a suite of products and services that can enable healthcare and medical technology companies in the Philippines to initiate or expand their market sales. The delegation’s portfolio includes electronic data processing, stainless steel medical furniture, medical aids especially of medical compression technology, nCPAP products in non-invasive therapy for premature babies, newborns and pediatric, MRI compatible devices, sterile processing systems, and X-ray technology.
During the event, the delegation will engage in strategic business-to-business discussions with participants to explore areas of common interest.
“The visit of such a delegation – composed of executives from medical technology companies in Bavaria – is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for local players in the Philippines. The delegation is composed of experts in their fields and we hope Philippine companies will take advantage of their presence,” Fund said.
