The 14th Ho Chi Minh City-International Hospital, Medical and Pharmaceutical Exhibition kicked off on August 21, drawing over 250 businesses both at home and abroad.

The expo aims to introduce new products and technologies, and connect trade activities between domestic and foreign businesses, thus further developing the domestic market with the focus on medicine, medical equipment, dental and ophthalmological products.

Companies from the Republic of Korea (RoK), India, Germany, Russia, Colombia, Italy and Japan maintain their booths at the event.

Participating businesses are offered a chance to join fact-finding tours of prestigious Vietnamese pharmaceutical manufacturing companies and hospitals.

Daniel Lee, chief representative from the RoK’s Sky SoftGel Co., Ltd, said that joining the event for several years has helped his company to meet more partners and understand more about pharmaceutical production demands and consumer tastes in Vietnam.
