The Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) and the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) have announced a closer way of working through the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU).
AdvaMed is the leading industry body for MedTech in the USA, and the MoU shows the intention of both organisations to support their industry internationally. The timing of the MoU is significant, as the UK seeks to form trade deals with countries around the world. ABHI said:
“The purpose of this agreement is to ensure the alignment of our work on global trade, regulation, technology adoption and ethics. As a result of this, we intend to enhance outcomes for patients, the efficiency of our health services and the success of our domestic and global industry partnerships.
“Formal negotiations on the UK-US trade deal commenced this week, and ABHI is engaging with senior officials to ensure the industry’s position is clearly understood.”
