El Salvador, through its Export and Investment Promotion Agency (PROESA), is participating in the medical devices exhibition Medical Design & Manufacturing West (MD&M West), which is being held at Anaheim, California, from February 11 – 13, 2014. The Salvadoran delegation includes companies from the metalworking and plastics sectors, as well as free zone operators.
According to Carolina Vides, PROESA’s Medical Devices Investment Adviser, this event presents a unique opportunity to promote the establishment of medical devices manufacturing plants and distribution centers in El Salvador, as well as outsourcing services from local companies. The medical devices industry is one of the most recent business opportunities the country has to offer. Companies investing in El Salvador can take advantage of its tax free zones; trade agreements with the USA, Central America and the European Union; a highly skilled workforce and low operation costs, among others.
14,000 people are expected to attend the 2014 MD&M West, where different products and services are going to be shown like: automation and robotics, manufacturing contracting services, lab supplies and equipment, medical materials, medical tubes and manufacturing of metal and plastic components.
