The Federal Office of Public Health and the cantons are issuing directives, the global economy is at the same level as the financial crisis of 2008, global supply bottlenecks and shortfalls are occurring and precautionary travel and work regulations are coming into force in a number of countries and companies.

And don’t miss our update on COVID-19: South Africa’s numbers of COVID-19 infected people has increased and the crisis hit the African economy with full force. Let us give you the latest information on this issue.

At the webinar «Medtech business opportunities in South Africa» on May 26 at 11.00 am (Swiss time, CET/MEZ), you will learn first-hand from the Swiss Business Hub in Southern Africa as well as from our partners and experts about the Medtech market in South Africa who will share their experience on how to navigate in the market in this uncertain business environment.
