Healthcare Trade Mission to Russia Slated for October
The International Trade Administration is organizing a healthcare trade mission to Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia, from Oct. 21-25. The ITA states that significant equipment, technologies and investments are needed in Russia’s healthcare sector, specifically in the medical equipment, dental equipment and biotechnology areas, and that as a result this mission will focus on U.S. firms and trade associations in those sectors. However, participants may not promote used or refurbished goods in the context of this mission.
A minimum of 15 U.S. companies and/or trade associations and a maximum of 20 will be selected to participate in this mission. All interested parties must submit by July 29 a completed and signed mission application and supplemental application materials, including adequate information on their products and/or services, primary market objectives and goals for participation. Each applicant must also certify that the products and services it seeks to export through the mission are either produced in the United States or, if not, marketed under the name of a U.S. firm and have at least 51% U.S. content of the value of the finished product or service.
