Healthcare & Medical Technologies Business Mission to Singapore and Philippines

The next business mission under the EU Business Avenues in South East Asia programme will take selected European companies in the Healthcare and Medical Technologies sector to Singapore and Philippines 28 August 2018 to 4 September 2018.

The business mission will first travel to Singapore to participate in Medical Fair Asia 2018, before flying over to Philippines for 2 days of pre-arranged business meetings with local stakeholders.

The increase in demand for healthcare and medical technologies in South East Asia is driven by rising affluence, changes in the public healthcare schemes, aging populations and the increase in chronic diseases.

The medical technology (medtech) sector is expected to grow from US$88 billion (S$120 billion) in 2015 to US$133 billion in 2020 in Asia Pacific, and Singapore is "well-positioned" to act as a gateway to tap the market in the region. Singapore expenditure for elderly and assistive technology is projected to grow 4.5 folds from 2015 to 2030.

Philippines, on the other hand, is witnessing increasingly more investment in public-private partnerships (PPPs) for major hospital infrastructure projects. At the same time the digital landscape is changing fast with the public and private sector pushing for the digitisation of healthcare information and accessibility for the benefit of the population.
