This article was originally published in Clinica
The newly-established medical device industry association (AMDIA) for the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN - see related story on page 11) has announced its first chair and two co-chairs. The association's secretary and members (two per country) were also announced at the meeting of the group's medical device working party in January 2008. Office bearers and the 11 members are elected through the processes of voting and consensus. All office bearers must be members of AMDIA and must be based in the ASEAN. Each country is represented by two members except Malaysia (one). Four countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar) are yet to name their committee members.
