ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Biomedical Innovation Forum 2013

An International Conference and Exhibition on Health Technology for Development (14-16 November 2013, Bangkok, Thailand 2013)

1. Rationale

The global biomedical industry continues to grow at impressive rates. The growth is non homogenous.  Asia for example has experienced a growth rate of over 10% per year over the last decade.  While powerhouse countries like China, Korea and Japan have accounted for the majority of the Asian market, domestic growth in South East Asia (ASEAN) countries are fast expanding, and should not be overlooked. In 2015, ten countries in the region will join and become a single market and population, known as the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). This geographical expansion and the new emerging market with an estimated population over 600 million will present great opportunities for all stakeholders in the healthcare and biomedical industry. In terms of technology development, finding sustainable competitive advantage through innovation is definitely a new challenge in the AEC market.
