Iran - The New Medtech Industry Business Opportunity in the Middle East (pdf)

Innovation & New Business Models

Studio 3

The partial removal of international sanctions against Iran marks the beginning of the opening-up of one of the emerging markets’ largest and most promising economies in recent decades. With a population of over 80 million, low debt and a vast potential of revenue, Iran clearly represents a huge opportunity for the medical technology industry. 
For any company planning to enter this market, it will be essential to understand and overcome the legal, political and cultural complexities and ambiguities connected with doing business in Iran, and ensure the right doors are open early to help foster essential business relationships. 
This workshop will aim at providing attendees with an insight into the exciting opportunities and key challenges that are arising in Iran. To that end, panelists will discuss topics and issues related to market access from across the medical technology industry’s distribution chain and will address questions from the audience on key aspects of doing business in Iran during an extensive Q&A session.
