In­dia Pav­il­ion at Hospi­ta­lar 2018

FICCI Business Digest - - Briefings -

In­dia is par­tic­i­pat­ing in Hospi­ta­lar 2018 in São Paulo, Brazil for the third time, with 47 In­dian com­pa­nies dis­play­ing their prod­ucts rang­ing from hospi­tal dis­pos­able so­lu­tions, hospi­tal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing to gen­eral med­i­cal de­vices. The third edition of 'In­dia Pav­il­ion' was or­ga­nized by FICCI and the Min­istry of Com­merce & In­dus­try, Govern­ment of In­dia, in New Delhi on 23 May 2018.

Ashok Das, In­dian Am­bas­sador to Brazil, in­au­gu­rated the In­dia Pav­il­ion at Hospi­ta­lar 2018 and said it would show­case In­dia's strength in the health­care and med­i­cal de­vices and equip­ment sec­tor. He added, 'As we cel­e­brate 70 years of In­dia-Brazil diplo­matic re­la­tions, it is fit­ting that our gov­ern­ments and busi­nesses come to­gether with re­newed vigour, to take our strate­gic part­ner­ship for­ward. In this re­gard, I want to men­tion the health­care sec­tor of In­dia, which has gained global recog­ni­tion to­day. In­dia's ad­van­tage lies in its cost com­pet­i­tive­ness com­pared to its peers in Asia and Western coun­tries, par­tic­u­larly in health­care ser­vices and hospi­tal equip­ment. I am sure that we can col­lab­o­rate more in this sec­tor.'

The par­tic­i­pa­tion of In­dian com­pa­nies at In­dia Pav­il­ion show­cased the lat­est prod­ucts and in­no­va­tions, new so­lu­tions and ser­vices for hos­pi­tals, lab­o­ra­to­ries, drug­stores, pri­vate prac­ti­tion­ers and clin­ics. This was fur­ther lever­aged by the In­dian Em­bassy in Brazil and Con­sulate Gen­eral of In­dia, São Paulo.

The high­lights in­cluded var­i­ous B2B ses­sions and an ex­clu­sive ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing In­dia's

po­ten­tial in the field of med­i­cal equip­ment and man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy. These in­clude med­i­cal de­vices used in var­i­ous spe­cial­iza­tions like in­fu­sion and trans­fu­sion ther­apy, dial­y­sis, gas­troen­terol­ogy, urol­ogy, anes­the­sia, surgery, gen­eral med­i­cal dis­pos­ables, catheters and tubes, den­tal, en­doscopy, la­paroscopy, oph­thal­mol­ogy, gy­ne­col­ogy, nephrol­ogy and ra­di­ol­ogy.

Hospi­ta­lar is a plat­form for busi­ness gen­er­a­tion and tech­no­log­i­cal growth in the health­care in­dus­try and brings buy­ers and sup­pli­ers to­gether.

The govern­ment has taken mul­ti­ple steps to boost the In­dian med­i­cal de­vice man­u­fac­tur­ing in the coun­try by al­low­ing 100 per cent au­to­matic FDI in the sec­tor, rolling back of the im­port duty con­ces­sions for 67 med­i­cal de­vices and set­ting-up three Med­i­cal Tech Parks, in process in Ma­ha­rash­tra, Andhra Pradesh and Gu­jarat.
