Healthcare expo opens in City

The latest healthcare products and technologies are being showcased at the four-day 12th International Exhibition on Products and Supplies for Healthcare Vi?t Nam, which opened the day before yesterday in HCM City.

Held at the S?i G?n Exhibition and Convention Centre in District 7, the healthcare sector’s biggest event has attracted more than 400 businesses, most of which are from Vi?t Nam.

More than 600 booths are displaying the latest pharmaceutical products as well as drug manufacturing and packaging machinery, medical equipment and supplies, beauty products and services, and medical environment treatment equipment and supplies.

The annual exhibition is a professional platform where domestic and foreign businesses can promote the latest products and technologies.

The show reflects Vietnamese companies’ strong development of high-quality healthcare products and services, meeting increased demand from local consumers.

This year, the exhibition has attracted companies from many countries and territories including the UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Russia, the Czech Republic, Sweden, South Korea, Japan, India, China and Malaysia.

“Although Vi?t Nam is listed among the low per capita income countries, our investment in healthcare is remarkably high. In recent years, the health system of Vi?t Nam has seen many positive changes in budget management,” said Nguy?n ??nh Anh, head of the Ministry of Health’s Department of Communication and Emulation.

Anh said the Ministry of Health spent US$11.6 billion, or 6.1 per cent of the national gross domestic product (GDP) in 2015, and is expected to spend this amount until 2018 to improve quality, focusing on major hospitals.

He said that it had been 11 years since the first exhibition was held in 2006 and it is now one of the most prestigious and most anticipated annual events in the healthcare field.

“After the first exhibition, the ministry developed a specific orientation plan to expand the exhibition scale so that it could become not only a showcase to introduce products but also a professional platform for businesses to exchange and seek new partners and suitable business opportunities, and contribute to the improvement of product quality as well as health services in Vi?t Nam,” Anh said.

At the event, thousands of patients can receive free screening and diagnoses from doctors at HCM City’s District 2 Hospital and University Medical Centre.

The screening and diagnoses are focusing on cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, especially cardiovascular screening for adults and congenital cardiovascular diseases in disadvantaged children.

The exhibition is organised by the Ministry of Health, ADPEX Joint-Stock Company, Central Health Communication and Education Centre, Vi?t Nam Pharmaceutical Companies Association and Vi?t Nam Medical Products Import – Export Joint-Stock Company.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
