  Four French suppliers of healthcare solutions (medical imaging, furniture and systems of sterilization and laundries) met the decision-makers and the Cameroonian influencers, to Douala and Yaoundé. 47 meeting (appointment) B to B was organized. The participants also visited two major public hospitals, actually driving innovative projects of renovation and extension. The projects-managers expressed an immediate interest for the solutions proposed by the French companies. The French offensive arrives at the convenient moment for the local buyers, marked by the launch of important programs of investments and a real will to rebuild the cooperation with the historic suppliers, French one particular, while the last ten years had rather been favorable to the Asian offers. Moreover, certain participants booked orders or identified by the partners during the mission. Patrick BASSOM UBIFRANCE CAMEROUN +237 33 42 90 62/33 42 90 65 patrick.bassom@ubifrance.fr

The Healthcare and Medical Technology Industry in : Overview of a sector of excellence

Chutima CHANKUNASUKA - 09-juin-2014 10:08:13

The healthcare industry is a key partner for governments in anticipating and providing solutions geared towards protection, prevention, diagnostics, compensating for disabilities, treatment and improving the daily quality of life of health product users. It plays a critical role in public health, one of the principal challenges facing French society. The healthcare industry (much like the aerospace and luxury sectors) plays a crucial part in preserving France’s industrial base and represents a major comparative advantage for the French economy: it employs more than 200,000 people directly and over 500,000 indirectly, and continues to go from strength to strength. The relative importance of the sector within France’s industrial landscape is greater than in other European economies of a similar size.

Reaffirming Leadership in Spectacle Lenses with Essilor’s Innovative CRIZAL®

Ratchaneekorn Mekchai - 17-juin-2013 07:00:45

Essilor Group is world’s number one in spectacle lens industry. The Company is a leader in development and manufacture of high quality lenses, including optical and eye examination equipment. An annual budget of 150 million Euros has been dedicated to research and development, with a team of more than 550 researchers worldwide. The Company has been launching innovative eyeglass lenses, both single lenses and progressive lenses, crafted with patented technologies. Researches find that excessive UV rays can cause eye problems such as pterygium, cataract, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), for which the cure has not been found. Forty percent of the UV rays in prolonged sun exposure can cause cataract. Apart from the sunlight, UV rays can also be found in artificial sources such as fluorescent bulbs, mobile phone screens, computers, etc. Those who wear normal lenses may not get sufficient protection. UV rays not only come from the front but also reflect from the back of the lenses. Wearing   lenses with double-sided UV protection is critical because it is impossible to be aware of UV reflection. This is the same as how miosis and astigmatism cannot be protected . Essilor has developed CRIZAL FORTE UV ® which guarantees 25 times eye-sun protection (E-SPF25). CRIZAL FORTE UV ® combines an exclusive backside UV protection with transparency. Essilor’s new Broad Spectrum Technology applied to the backside of the lens eliminates UV reflection into the eyes. Lenses also prevent UV rays from the front. This innovation allows for UV protection without the need for sunglasses. Wearers also confirmed best transparency from the lens performance in glare reduction, smudge resistance, scratch resistance, dust repellence, and water repellence. For those working at close range or on computers, Crizal Anti-Fatique supports wearer’s accommodation efforts and provides relief to visual fatigue. It also helps prevent computer vision syndrome (CVS) which causes dry eyes and irritation. Each individual’s needs for corrective lenses are unique depending on visual conditions, age, environment, as well as daily activities and lifestyle. Essilor’s Eyecode is another innovative step to help determine corrective lenses which best suit each individual. This includes 3-D visual examination which yields 5 times more accuracy. Moreover, the Company also focuses on special needs such as Azio for Asians. Thissadee TULYAANUKIJ, Essilor Distribution (Thailand) Ltd.’s General Manager said, during the recent press conference on the launch of Crizal FORTE UV, that “Lens and spectacle frames industry in Thailand has an approximate market value of 5,000 million Baht. Essilor’s market share in lenses is at 25%. The Company’s factory is at Ladkrabang Industrial Estate, which is their biggest production base in the world. It manufactures products for distribution in Thailand and overseas. The Company also has prescriptive laboratories as well as leading optical store alliances around the country. This year, the Company’s market share is expected to grow by 10% with focus on middle and high end customers.” “Apart from marketing activities and PR, we focus on providing consumers with knowledge and useful information. We are also dedicated to CSR with the mission to help people to see the world better. Last year, we provided visual examination to Special Olympic athletes and the Rajvithi Home for Girls. We are also planning CSR for this year, of which we will inform you later." “In addition, we wish for consumers to give more care to choosing spectacle lenses because of their direct impacts on visual quality and health. Most consumers pay more attention to spectacle frames while choosing quality spectacle lenses help correct visual problems as well as prevent visual loss. It should also be noted that lenses available on the market are of different grades. Some do not pass quality standards and control while some are tainted with harzardous chemicals”, added Khun Thissadee. About Essilor Group Essilor has a long experience and expertise in development and production of spectacle lenses for more than 160 years. The Company is the merger of two world’s leaders in optical lenses, Essel and Silor , in 1972. From design to manufacturing, Essilor creates lenses for all types of visual corrections and disorders. The Group’s know-how also covers the manufacturing and distribution of optical instruments. By constantly striving to stay at the leading edge of innovation, the Essilor Group has maintained its technological lead. It has a very extensive and homogenous distribution network so as to meet any demand within a very short timeframe. Varilux, Crizal, and Xperio are well-known brands that contribute to Essilor’s success. All of Essilor’s production sites are certified ISO9001, OHSAS18001 and ISO14001 and work in full conformity with the environmental and safety laws. Essilor has 48,700* employees around the world working daily on the group’s development in 58 different countries.
