As one of the measures to promote sustainable healthcare delivery in Nigeria and boost health tourism, the Commercial Service of the United States Mission to Nigeria, has concluded arrangements to lead an official Nigerian delegation to this year’s edition of the Florida International Medical Exhibitions (FIME) and trade fair.

The event is the largest international medical congress in the United States. The Nigerian team among other engagements would establish some synergy with their counterparts thereby building bridges to promote best practices in healthcare delivery and seek foreign direct investment (FDI) for the industry.

The exposition scheduled to be held from August 8 – 10, 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami, Florida, offers over 3,600 healthcare products covering disposable surgical products, emergency systems, laboratory, dental, rehabilitation, orthopaedic, imaging, biomedical, pharmaceutical products and healthcare service providers.

Mr. Anayo Agu, Senior Commercial Specialist who confirmed this in Lagos expressed hope that the convention would benefit Nigerian healthcare professionals and stakeholders including importers and distributors of medical, dental, laboratory and pharmaceutical products.

Others who would benefit from the world’s medical marketplace are directors of hospitals, dental clinics and laboratory firms, top government officials (ministers, governors, commissioners, permanent secretaries, etc) responsible for healthcare services.

Doctors, pharmacists, dental and laboratory technologists, CEOs of health management organizations, and CEOs of Non-Governmental Organizations supporting healthcare industry, orthopaedic product suppliers, imaging suppliers, medical services providers, biomedical product suppliers, pharmaceutical suppliers, trade facilitators and tourism consumers.

He advised potential attendees to contact Dr. (Mrs.) Charity Iriobe, Managing Director, Odafane Travels and Tours, Plot 5, Imam Abib Adetoro Street, Victoria Island, Lagos for their registration and to enable their visas to be processed in time.
