As the centrally healthcare-based field of biotechnology increases in importance, advanced nations recognize the growing role of the healthcare bio-industry in the world economy. To achieve global competitiveness, nations are undertaking vigorous industry promotion through various efforts, such as R&D support and the development of expert human resources.
With the pharma/bio and global healthcare industries as the new growth engines of the Korean economy, our nation is investing heavily in R&D. Through joint effort, Korea is also working towards a state-of-the-art medical system, developing new technology, finding ways to spread into the global market, and attracting foreign patients, among other tasks. Amidst this globally competitive environment, KHIDI has persistently supported the efforts of the Korean healthcare industry.
KHIDI USA was established to promote awareness of the needs of and importance of the healthcare industry. Committed to helping the Korean healthcare industry achieve global competence and competitiveness, KHIDI seeks your understanding, cooperation, and active support in our endeavors.
Ongoing efforts are being made to overcome challenging factors, such as the rapid aging of the population, the escalation of lifestyle and chronic illnesses, and Swine Flu, that augment the world's infectious disease rate and continue to threaten public wellbeing. The growing importance of the topics of 'health' and 'life' make the life science and healthcare industries increasingly core, value-added industries in our present day. In order to thrive in such a competitive environment, we must make compromises and hedge risk through a strategy of "collaboration and partnership." Amidst this highly competitive setting, KHIDI USA, based in the world's most advanced healthcare nation, encourages collaboration between the Korean and American health care industries, in the areas of products, technologies, services, and expertise. While promoting a joint partnership between the Korean and U.S. healthcare industries, KHIDI USA seeks to achieve mutual growth for both nations. In our endeavors, we ask for the participation and support of all those involved in our undertakings.
