JETRO brings 20 innovative Japanese medical companies to Arab Health

TOKYO, 30th January, 2017 (WAM) — The Japan External Trade Organisation, JETRO, has announced its successful participation in the Arab Health 2017 exhibition, which runs at Dubai World Trade Centre until February 2nd. The Japanese pavilion showcases the latest health innovations and technology, while receiving visitors and investors from around the globe.

The Japan Pavilion has participated in Arab Health since 2010, and this year sees its largest contingent ever, with 20 Japanese medical technology firms in attendance. Eleven of them are first-time participants, while nine are repeat participants continuing their uninterrupted streak of participating every year in the region’s largest scientific-medical summit and exhibition.

Their participation is seen as a step forward in strengthening and further boosting Japan’s advanced technology in the field of quality healthcare delivery systems.

“The companies who take part in this exhibition shed light on the latest technologies and showcase a multitude of exceptional healthcare innovations. These include ultra-thin needles that lessen patient discomfort, a new anti-decubitus air mattress system and micro blades with uniquely shaped edges for fine incision. This calibre of innovation is why Japan has been a longtime pioneer in the industry,” said Masami Ando, Managing Director of JETRO for the Middle East and North Africa.

The 20 manufacturing companies focus on healthcare needs such as infection control products, rehabilitation and physiotherapy equipment, hydrotherapy medical devices, automatic labeling systems, disposable surgical needles and gentle lighting. Their participation will enable them to make a great impact in the highly competitive industry in the Middle East.
