EIBN Focus Group Discussion on Healthcare Sector
Indonesia has a population of nearly 258 million people and is therefore home to one of the largest healthcare industries of the world. Even though 27% of the population is below fifteen years old, the elderly population is expected predicted will reach 25% in 2050. This rapidly increasing elderly population will have major consequences for Indonesian society, especially in the healthcare sector. Almost all domestic manufacturers only produce basic hospital equipment, such as hospital beds, wheelchairs and disposable supplies. Overseas companies account for over 95% of total supplies, including the more sophisticated medical and surgical instruments and infrastructure, such as medical lasers and diagnostic equipment.
Indonesia’s healthcare industry provides profitable opportunities for European companies. Therefore as part of EIBN’s focus sectors EIBN visited Lille, France on March 14 in order to introduce Indonesia’s healthcare sector. EIBN, in cooperation with Eurosanté, conducted a Focus Group Discussion in order to give an outlook on the business opportunities and the steps for French companies to enter the Indonesian healthcare market. The team also took the opportunity to promote EIBN’s upcoming Healthcare Trade Mission in Jakarta from April 23-25, 2018. By the end of the event, the EIBN team conducted individual business consultations with French companies interested in entering Indonesian market.
