The Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI) has dispatched a healthcare delegation to Moscow and St. Petersburg to support the advancement of domestic health industries such as medical services and medical devices into Russia.
The delegation stayed in Russia from Oct. 15-19.
During their stay, the delegates also held the second Korea-Russia Healthcare Cooperation Forum in Moscow and actively shared cases of medical personnel training in both countries.
The institution also held a business meeting in cooperation with members from the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency and held 121 consultations -- 54 in Moscow and 67 in St. Petersburg.
“Russia is a market for Korean companies to pioneer in the future, but we still are suffering from the lack of information,” said Cho Hong-suk, Ailee Sutures’ finance director and a member of the delegation. “This was a great opportunity to expand our understanding of the Russian market.”
The KHIDI said it would continue to promote healthcare cooperation between the two governments to support the entry of Korean healthcare industry into Russia. In this regard, it will send a healthcare delegation next year, too.
