The French Chamber at Medicen, Paris, France – June 2017

30 June 2017 – As part of a business trip with the purpose of facilitating business relations between Singapore and France, the French Chamber Singapore did a co-presentation with Dr Benjamin Seet, Executive Director of Biomedical Research Council, A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research) about the opportunities and landscape of research and medical devices in Singapore.

It was a good occasion to present the upcoming opportunities in trade shows and exhibitions in Singapore, namely IDEM (International Dental Exhibition and Meeting) / 13 – 15 April 2018 (focus on dental equipments, instruments, tools, hygiene products, etc.) and also Medical Fair Asia / 26 – 28 August 2018 (focus on equipment and supplies for the hospital, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical and rehabilitation sectors). The French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore organises the French Pavilion for both of these tradeshows. (For more information on the tradeshows, see here)

At the same time, it was a great opportunity to share with our counterparts in France the Smart Health platform that had been recently launched. The Smart Health platform brings together French startups, SMEs, MNCs and academic and research institutes and builds on a French collective approach to address Singapore’s healthcare challenges.

This business trip also featured Speed Meeting Asia, organised in collaboration with The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company, or EPV), a certification label from the Economic French Ministry managed by the Institut Superieur des métiers (ISM).

Sylvain Aparicio, Business Development Manager at the French Chamber presented an overview of Singapore, and attended the speed meeting with 16 different companies from all over France who shared about their projects. He presented the different services of the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, and in particular, on the Chamber’s prospection missions.
