The Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi is pleased to support the live webinar: The Dubai Advantage - Healthcare Sector Opportunities hosted by Dubai Investment Development Agency (Dubai FDI) and CBC Dubai and Northern Emirates.

This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the current healthcare ecosystem and opportunities available in the healthcare ecosystem in Dubai.

Colliers International Healthcare Analysis revealed that healthcare spending in the UAE is expected to reach US$2.4 billion by 2025 and $3.6 billion by 2030 and the UAE ranks in the world’s top 20 for healthcare spending per capita.

Due to its world-class infrastructure, central global position and excellent healthcare services, Dubai has become the hub for medical tourism in the Middle East. Combined with expected population growth the medical industry has thrived and prior to recent events the predicted value of the UAE healthcare market was set to reach 19.5 billion by 2020.

A large section of DHA’s Dubai Health Strategy 2021 focuses on innovation such as 3D Modelling, Robotic Pharmacy, Digitisation, Health Apps and Smart Fitness.

Among many best-in-class hospitals and clinics, Dubai is also home to the world's largest medical free zone, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).

The Dubai Health industry presents a growth opportunity and companies interested in expanding their businesses offshore and/or diversification through accessing high-potential new markets are invited to gain insight from the various presentations.
