Australian innovation showcasing at MEDICA

Over the past decade, the Australian health and medical industry has grown dramatically and has become truly global. Australian innovation is being showcased at MEDICA again this year.

The Australian health and medical industry is now internationally renowned for world-leading technology, high professional skills levels, advanced research and development capabilities, and robust yet open regulatory systems. The key growth areas are medical and surgical equipment and devices, health IT, health infrastructure and services, and clinical trials. Australia is one of the richest healthcare markets in the Asia-Pacific region and ranks as the eleventh-largest healthcare market in the world.

Austrade, the Australian Government’s trade promotion and export facilitation agency, has coordinated a record participation of 35 exhibitors on the National Pavilion. International companies that are interested in business partnerships are invited to visit the Australian stand in Hall 17 A57/B58 and to log on to the recently launched B2B Web Portal www.austradehealth.gov.au/healthportal for a comprehensive overview of Australia’s health & medical industry capability.

Austrade can help you learn about the strength and expertise of Australian health & medical companies, identify Australian companies who can support your import initiatives, and increase your growth potential with innovative Australian products and services.
