Germany's industry federation, the BDI, has urged that market forces be allowed to have due influence over the national healthcare products sector. Speaking at the annual general meeting of medtech industry association Spectaris, in Stuttgart last week, BDI deputy-president Friedhelm Loh said: "German can only be a worldwide leader in healthcare innovations when there is free pricing that promotes competition for such innovative products." He added that only then will it be possible for companies to invest in relatively costly and high-risk products.
