Market assessment and market linkages for PPE and medical devices from The Philippines

The Global Quality and Standards Programme project (GQSP) in the Philippines looks to ensure safe and purposeful PPEs, medical devices, and sanitation products for the Philippines´ people and health workers. This ambition is pursued through three action lines: harmonizing standards to establish safety benchmarks, investing in manufacturing excellence through reliable testing and certification services and fostering a culture of quality that ensures sustained progress. This project is supported by the Government of Switzerland through the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO).

Globally Cool´s involvement in this project includes the identification of potential markets, in-depth research of pre-selected markets, and a sharing session with the stakeholders to define common ground for an industrial strategy.

  • Best market assessment report: prioritisation of high-potential markets based on Globally Cool´s Best Market Selection Model that combines a wide range of indicators.
