One of the largest international healthcare techno fairs, Arab Health 2019, opened in Dubai on 28 January. Fourteen Moscow-based companies represent the Russian capital under a common brand, Made in Moscow, according to Deputy Mayor Natalya Sergunina.
“This is the first exhibition in 2019 in which Moscow-based exporters participate under the city’s Made in Moscow support programme. City producers brought more than 30 of their latest creations to Dubai,” Natalya Sergunina commented.
Ms Sergunina added that before the year is out, Moscow export companies plan on taking part in 25 international exhibitions under the Made in Moscow programme.
Alexei Fursin, Head of the Moscow Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovations, said that Moscow producers were presenting some of their most advanced ultra sound and diagnostics equipment and software as well as goods that can be used in developing medicine and robotics.
One of the exhibits is a compact digital thermometer that can be synchronised with a smartphone. It does not restrict movements and can even be used when people are sleeping. For example, after installing a special app, parents can receive real-time data on their child’s temperature.
Another development is a diagnostics platform based on cloud technology. The software increases the efficiency of cancer diagnostics and reduces errors. Moreover, it allows doctors to have consultations online and examine test results that way too.
The Made in Moscow brand was created to promote the city’s hi-tech companies abroad. The Moscow Government’s Made in Moscow programme helps entrepreneurs to find new customers around the world.
Under the programme launched in December 2016, the city covers up to 100 percent of the companies’ international fair participation costs and organises meetings with potential investors.
