After many years of neglect, the Russian government has begun to address the deficiencies of their healthcare system and the impending demographic crisis in that country. As a result, the Russian market for medical equipment is a at turning point, presenting market opportunities for foreign manufacturers that did not exist in previous years.
Current imports of foreign-made medical instruments to Russia are estimated at $1 billion per year and are growing at 20 percent per year. Russian manufacturers cannot compete at the high end of this market, making Russia's healthcare infrastructure an especially attractive target for U.S. medical device companies.
Our featured speaker, Mr. Robert Rosen, is the Former Chairman of the International Medical Device Manufacturers Association, a Moscow-based organization for U.S. medtech companies doing business in Russia. Mr. Rosen has recently retired from Medtronics after a long business career in Russia.
This morning briefing will be held at Foley Hoag's Emerging Enterprise Center and is open to all MassMEDIC and USRCCNE members free of charge.
