During the meeting, the Minister discussed prospects for expanding the range of bilateral cooperation, especially in terms of comprehensive counteraction to cardiovascular diseases and the introduction of innovative technologies to prevent complications in patients with diabetes mellitus. We must move to the use of technologies and medical devices that give the best results in the long run.
Within the framework of cooperation, they agreed to consider the possibility of localizing the production of certain medical devices of the company in Ukraine as part of state support for projects with significant investments, so-called “investment nannies”, as well as expanding cooperation between Medtronic and Ukrainian companies specializing in IT solutions.
A separate issue for cooperation that was discussed at the signing of the memorandum is cooperation in the scientific field, attracting our scientists and investing in research that can be conducted by Ukrainian scientific institutes.
