The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) and the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) held the Korea-U.S. Supply Chain and Commercial Dialogue Healthcare Working Group meeting on March 14 via videoconferencing.


Launched in 2022, the Korea-U.S. Supply Chain and Commercial Dialogue (SCCD) is a bilateral ministerial-level channel between MOTIE and the U.S. DOC consisting of four Working Groups (WGs): 1. Advanced Manufacturing and Supply Chain Resilience, 2. Dual-Use Export Controls, 3. Digital Economy, and 4. Healthcare and Healthcare Technology. The Healthcare WG meeting was held to seek measures for enhancing the two countries' mutual understanding and cooperation with regard to their healthcare industries.


The two sides shared their respective healthcare industry issues and policies and discussed measures for expanding cooperation in the healthcare industry and related technologies. They also agreed to uncover opportunities for collaboration in joint private-sector R&D projects and to continue to actively utilize the SCCD Healthcare WG channel for advancing bilateral industrial cooperation.
