This article was originally published in Clinica
The French parliamentary medical technologies working group (see Clinica No 918, p 3) is to be headed by Bernard Charles, president of the Radical Green Citizens party. Mr Charles has taken a personal interest in this sector of French industry and has recently described it as "gradually emerging from a tunnel". The appointment has been welcomed by the French medical device industry association, SNITEM, which has developed a good working relationship with the MP. It has also been applauded by the US Advanced Medical Technology Association, AdvaMed, which is actively trying to help shape French policies (see this issue page 5).
