Health Committee

The American Chamber of Commerce in Australia’s Health Committee focusses on policy engagement in areas of relevance to the Healthcare sector. The Healthcare products industry has a large number of US based companies with similar challenges from both a policy perspective and from the perspective of trade interests based on their origin. Similarly there may be Australian based companies with an interest in doing business in the US. Whilst all have access to broader Industry Association representation across the sectors they operate in, the committee works as a complementary adjunct to these industry associations to focus on the specific interests of companies as they cross over with US and Australian government trade policy and priorities, and covers issues such as regulatory coherency.
