Virtual Delegation: South Korean Healthcare

From October 27 to October 29, 2020, you have the exclusive opportunity to join a series of virtual business meetings with Korean stakeholders including companies, hospitals, and government officials. The Virtual Delegation focuses on bridging Danish exporters with potential Korean partners and healthcare professionals.

The meetings will be held from 8 – 11 AM DK time (4 – 7 PM KR time). The Virtual Delegation is hosted by The Confederation of Danish Industry and The Embassy of Denmark in South Korea with support from Danish Export – Health Tech.

In response to the pandemic, the South Korean government has recently launched the "Korean New Deal" for getting the economy up and running post COVID-19 by utilizing the market forces. The New Deal consists of three parts, one of which is the "Digital New Deal" aimed at expanding the field of digital technologies and AI in healthcare and government.

With an allocated budget of 38.5 trillion KRW the Digital New Deal holds the promise of rapid innovation as well as plenty of opportunities in the tech and health-tech industries. The government’s investment in the Korean New Deal will provide a significant boost to the sector, creating a range of opportunities for companies working with digital solutions to healthcare problems, hospital equipment, and innovation in healthcare in general.

During the virtual delegation, Danish companies will have the opportunity to present their services and products to a variety of strategic stakeholders in Korea, including industry experts, researchers, hospital management staff, and Korean companies and distributors.
