Costa Rica: Medical Devices Consortium

The new consortium CR Med Supply consisting of ten medical device manufacturing and exporting companies aims to improve its positioning, particularly in the US markets and Canada.

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

CR Med Supply consortium begins its management with a view to markets such as the United States and Canada 

With the aim of promoting the country's competitiveness, economic progress and social development of companies that provide inputs to the medical device sector, 10 Costa Rican suppliers took the initiative to form the CR Med Supply consortium.

The new consortium, which was born with the support of Costa Rica's Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER), the Costa Rican Coalition for Development Initiatives (CINDE) and the Chamber of Industries (ICRC), also seeks to strengthen the projection of Costa Rica at a global level in the manufacture of medical devices -mainly in two strategic markets such as the United States and Canada-, which, in turn, translates into greater attraction of foreign investment and an increase in the scope of exports.
