Seminar "The healthcare and medical equipment sector in South Africa"


ACCIÓ and CataloniaBio & HealthTech are holding this seminar for Catalan companies to raise awareness of the potential in the South African market for the healthcare and medical equipment sector. The event will also feature a presentation of the business mission to the Africa Health Fair  in Johannesburg from 29 to 31 May 2018.

South Africa has roughly 4,000 clinics and 700 hospitals with more than 100,000 beds in total. 95% of medical equipment is imported and there are very few barriers to importing products for this sector. In the pharmaceutical market, imports make up 50% of the total. The fields with the greatest opportunities are diagnostics and laboratory equipment.

This seminar is part of the International Business Days – Focus on Africa and the Middle East programme by ACCIÓ, held 12 to 16 February in Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona (seminars and interviews with experts).
