On Monday, the highly anticipated Arab Health opened its 45th edition in Dubai. It witnessed involvement of more than 55,000 healthcare and trade professionals and around 5,000 companies from around the world.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, toured the exhibition on the opening day. They went around various pavilions and met senior officials.
The four-day event showcased the latest medical equipment, technologies and services in the global healthcare industry.
Sheikh Mohammed first stopped by the GE pavilion and met with its officials. Then, he visited Draeger Medical GmbH, Siemens, Phillips, the Abu Dhabi Health Authority, and the Dubai Health Authority, where he came to know about various products and services.
To quote Ross Williams, exhibition director of Arab Health, “Last year, more than $824 million worth of business was generated by exhibitors at Arab Health, denoting a year-on-year increase of 5.9 per cent.”
The UAE’s economy was boosted by the business tourism that the show generated, while the healthcare industry in the region benefitted from solutions addressing diseases like diabetes, obesity and cancer.
Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) presented their landmark initiatives in the event.
