Brazil's health fair Hospitalar The Brazilian minister of Health, José Gomes Temporão, said in the southeastern Brazilian city of São Paulo, at the opening of the Hospitalar, Latin America's largest health sector fair, that "it is easy to realize the potential and wealth of the Brazilian health sector," referring to the size of the event, which is the world's second largest.

"The fair has long ceased to be just for products and technology, and it became a major event for discussing health," he claimed.

The minister recalled in his address that the Hospitalar counts on the participation of over 1,000 exhibitors from 30 different countries, and that the sector is now going through a phase of improvement. According to Temporão, promotion, improvement in quality and management of public services are among the goals of the government in office.

To the governor of the southern Brazilian state of São Paulo, José Serra, the Hospitalar attests to the effort and advancements of the Brazilian industry. "This exhibit is very important to our country. It is a fair that brings together 1,000 exhibitors, 70% of which are Brazilian industries, and this is proof of our industry's effort," he stated.

According to the president of the fair, Waleska Santos, the Hospitalar has become an "international health week". "In the last 14 years, the event became a worldwide reference point," she said.

The fair, which will continue until Friday, June 15, at the Expo Center Norte, counts on 300 international exhibitors. The event, open only to health sector professionals and businessmen, should receive more than 70,000 visitors from all over Brazil and 50 other countries.

At the opening of the fair, also present were the Health Secretary of the State of São Paulo, Luiz Roberto Barradas; the president of the Association of the Manufacturers of Medical and Dental Products (Abimo), Franco Pallamolla; the secretary of the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, Nilton Sacenco; the president of the National Health Council (CNS), José Carlos Abrahão, among other guests.
