Asia & Africa Committee Meeting
Ms Hazel Ip, Managing Director at All Trusted Medical, spoke at the Asia and Africa Committee Meeting on 20 September. She shared her experience about working in Africa as a young entrepreneur, where she set up a mobile clinic and helped her company, which supplies medical equipment such as IVD analyzers, become a trusted name in Kenya and South Sudan.
Procuring medical equipment in Africa is never an easy task for hospitals, she says, as these are often not very accessible, and therefore costs a premium. Her company helps hospitals cut costs by introducing more budget-friendly alternatives to expensive brand-name equipment, and in turn contributes to making medical care more affordable. She adds that African countries have great demand of Hong Kong's professional expertise in areas such as shipping and logistics, and product marketing to help them reach international markets.
