With the average cost to develop a new medical device in excess of $100 million, companies have little choice but to improve the speed and efficiency with which they commercialize. All options are on the table. Increasingly medical device and diagnostic companies pursue markets abroad – either prior to their commercialization in the US or in addition to it – to create new and to augment their existing revenue streams.

During his opening remarks Peter M. Perez*, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Manufacturing at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, will outline export opportunities in key foreign markets and discuss the National Export Initiative (NEI) initiated by the Obama administration He will focus on new as well as ongoing policy initiatives with regards to regulatory, marketing and finance resources and assistance programs available to the medical device and diagnostic companies venturing abroad.

Among discussion items: how to initiate or advance medical device exports outside the United States; challenges associated with marketing abroad and relevant, how to best leverage resources of the US Government and potential sources of export financing. A time at the end will be available for the audience Q&A.
