The International Trade Administration is accepting through Nov. 8 comments on export markets for the healthcare services sector. Input may be offered by U.S. industry, researchers, academia, and civil society and may cover both established and emerging services that are being used to address and treat various healthcare needs in different international markets.
The information sought includes (1) current global market conditions in regard to healthcare services, (2) related needs for healthcare services exports that affect success in international markets, and (3) the effectiveness of the assistance ITA already offers and ideas for activities not currently offered. Specific topics may include the following.
- foreign markets presenting the greatest potential for growth in healthcare services exports and the services and technologies most in demand in these markets
- countries offering the most competition in this sector and in which services or technologies
- existing trade barriers and the regulatory, standards, or other market condition changes that would be most significant in facilitating exports
- how local licensing requirements and/or other certifications affect the ability to operate in various international markets
- how exporters find local representatives and employees and how dependent their service offerings are on finding suitable local partners
- how the ITA’s direct collaboration with foreign governments to address market-specific challenges, and its implementation of export promotion activities, would be useful
- activities not currently offered that would be helpful to U.S. exporters
