A group of Israeli CEOs whose companies manufacture medical equipment travelled to England last week to meet with investors and hospital representatives in the hope of expanding their businesses into the British market, the world's sixth largest market of health-care services. England's medical equipment market is worth approximately $6 billion, according to the National Health Service, England's national health care provider. Israel and England did over $4b. worth of trade in 2006, with Israeli exports mainly consisting of plastics, and agricultural and communications equipment. Exports of medical supplies grew 35% in 2006 to $32 million, according to the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor.
