Dr. Chin-Tsang Ho, Director General of SMEA, MOEA, said in his opening remarks that Taiwan's medical devices industry contributes the advantages of reliable supply chain, cooperative industry clusters, startups groups, and effective patent deployment. Its production value has therefore grown year after year. Indian companies can make good use of Taiwan's world-leading supply chains to develop high-tech medical devices and satisfy the huge internal demand of the Indian medical devices market. Mr. Swain, Secretary of Ministry of MSME, said in his opening remarks that India, with its growing medical devices market and high-level human resources, is willing to cooperate with Taiwan to jointly explore business opportunities in the global medical devices market. During the forum, representatives of both the medical devices clusters from Taiwan and India expressed a strong willingness to cooperate. The representative of the medical devices cluster in Southern Taiwan Science Park noted that the cluster can assist Indian SMEs of medical devices coming to Taiwan in conducting tests and verifications, and in connecting with supply chain partners.
