“China is a country that has been showing, not only in this sector but in all industries, new technology, new developments and new discoveries and it is a country of utmost importance.”
There is not only a desire to buy, but an impulse to know more about China’s production capacity and know-how, as well as consolidate business ties with target partners.

“As I know, we used to have overall promotions of our products in Colombia. We expect to bring the high-quality products of China to this market.”
The biennial Meditech hosts 70 companies from various countries this year, aiming to bring the latest technology and products to Latin America.
