France at Africa Health 2013
Africa Health was a 3 day exhibition hosted at Gallagher Estate in Midrand. The exhibition brought together healthcare professionals, medical device and equipment companies, wholesalers and distributors to interact and learn of new developments in the healthcare field. France was very well represented at the exhibition due the large number of French companies working in the healthcare field.
The French pavilion at Africa Health, organised by Ubifrance, the French trade promotion agency in South Africa, brought together 14 of the leading healthcare firms from France and local and continental distributors.
On Thursday 9 May 2013 Ambassador Elisabeth Barbier visited the exhibition and perused the French pavilion, keen to see growing cooperation between French and South African businesses in the health sector.
Over the course of three days some 5000 people visited the exhibition, where 400 exhibitors from 51 countries showcased their products and new developments.
