Ontario province, home to some of Canada's finest life sciences companies, will be showcasing its medical technology in East Asia this week. Intralink, the Canadian Embassy in Seoul and the Canadian Trade Office in Osaka will be supporting the delegation during its Korea and Japan tour February 19-23.
Ontario's top 8 healthcare industry companies participating in the tour will first head to Seoul for a series of B2B meetings with their Korean counterparts who were selected and pre-validated by Intralink. They will then go on to Medical Japan - one of Asia's most prominent healthcare events attracting thousands of exhibitors each year. Intralink's team is providing on-the-ground support to the Canadian guests.
The choice of Korea and Japan for this delegation was no accident – as ageing societies with booming healthcare markets they represent prime destinations for providers of medical technologies and pharmaceuticals.
