"German Pavilion" premiers at Pharmed & Healthcare Vietnam

German healthcare companies have taken part in the premiere appearance of the German Pavilion at Pharmed & Healthcare Vietnam, the Southeast Asian country's leading trade show for medtech and medicine. The shared stand is all about showing what sets products "made in Germany" apart from the rest in terms of quality, reliability, service, and more.

Eight exhibitors were presenting their goods and services and providing information at the pavilion, including those with globally-known names such as Otto Bock, and innovative, relatively new businesses like JeNaCell. A strategic consulting and regulatory advice firm specialized in Southeast Asia, Afghanistan, and India – Implantex Pte. Ltd. – was at the stand as well.

A developer and marketer of high-quality orthomolecular nutritional medicine, Centax Pharma, and Sifin Gmbh, a diagnostics company, were at the pavilion, too, as were machine builders WFT Pharmatec GmbH, and WEINMANN Emergency Medical Technology GmbH & Co.KG.

Germany's Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi and representatives of the Export Initiative for the German Healthcare Industry, HEALTH MADE IN GERMANY, were at the pavilion as well, assisting companies and individuals interested in contacting potential German partners and suppliers.

The premiere of the German Pavilion at Pharmamed & Healthcare, which was held in Ho Chi Minh City from 11 September to 14 September, reflects the rapid growth of Vietnam's healthcare system. The country's medical technology market is growing at a rate of eleven percent and has import rate of ninety percent per year. What is more, there is great interest in German suppliers, given that Germany is one of the top two countries which meet Vietnamese demand for these products.

Pharmed & Healthcare has a strong international orientation. This year the trade fair demonstrated Germany’s special significance by welcoming it to the trade show as as a partner country. Vietnam's Deputy Health Minister made the German Pavilion his first stop on the official tour that followed the opening ceremony.
