With the healthcare market expected to reach US$94 billion by 2021*, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) offers huge opportunities for UK healthcare and life science businesses.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) in the East of England will be joined by DIT Commercial Officers Donna Overton, based in Dubai and Aiman Abidi, based in Saudi Arabia, to meet with businesses from the region and discuss the potential opportunities available to them.

What will be covered

  • Current market focus – where are governments and private sector organisations investing?
  • What diseases / issues are the current focus?
  • Regulatory bodies for Pharmaceutical and Medical devices in market. Mutual recognition between states? Compliance policies?
  • Bidding into major projects including hospitals and health ministries
  • Selection and management of local partners
  • How important is “offset” in the securing of contracts in healthcare (i.e. provision of local jobs, inclusion of local investment etc.)

The Commercial Officers specialise in the healthcare and life science sectors and will start by giving an overview of the opportunities available within the two markets. There will also be an opportunity to take part in round table discussions and have 1-2-1 meetings with the Commercial Officers and sector specialist Trade Advisers.
