“The continued expansion of the healthcare sector in the Middle East offers a number of exciting opportunities for Irish companies, who are among the global leaders in life sciences, medical technology and digital heath,” Breen said. “Our participation at Arab Health each year is demonstrative of Ireland’s commitment and contribution to the ambitious growth objectives of this important industry. We look forward to building on this year’s success to further develop our businesses and relationships in the Middle East.

Minister Breen also took part in a number of engagements to build on the strong relationship Enterprise Ireland has with healthcare institutions and government bodies in the UAE including; Neuro Spinal Hospital, the Dubai Health Authority, Abu Dhabi Health Services, and VPS Healthcare Group – a healthcare provider with a network of hospitals, medical centres, pharmaceutical manufacturing and pharmacy retailers globally. In addition, Minister Breen visited with Dubai EXPO 2020 and senior representatives of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority to progress ongoing discussions.

Tom Kelly, Divisional Manager of Lifesciences at Enterprise Ireland, said the trade visit was one of 40 international events to help Irish companies identify new markets for their products and services. He pointed out that there is already a high volume of trade between Ireland and the UAE with exports from Irish companies exceeding €124M in 2015.

“Ireland has a well-developed life sciences sector for which we see growth opportunities in the Gulf region,” Kelly said. “We are keen to use Arab Health as an opportunity to promote Ireland to potential healthcare buyers and invite them to attend MedinIreland – Ireland’s largest medtech event – in October 2017. Helping Irish companies identify new markets for their products and services is part of Enterprise Ireland’s strategy to enable our clients to build scale and expand global reach as part of our response to the UK’s decision to leave the EU.”
