MEDICA 2010: German Chancellor Merkel at the trade fair
One of every ten euros of the gross domestic product is gained through health care. And, despite Germanys image of being a nation of motorists actually the most patents are filed in the medical field. It is therefore no wonder that German Chancellor Angela Merkel paid a visit to the world's largest medical trade fair MEDICA in Duesseldorf. Also present was the Minister of health Dr. Philipp Rösler, who prepared for the upcoming tasks at the Hospital day which runs parallel to the fair.
