The Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) has started a service online for matching buyers and sellers of medical paraphernalia needed to keep the Covid-19 pandemic at bay.

IPIM issued a written announcement on Thursday saying its Business Matching for Epidemic Prevention Supplies service is accessible through its Online Business Matching Service Platform website, which has a Portuguese-language version for matching enterprises in the lusophone world with Chinese enterprises.

IPIM says the service will constantly give the market for medical paraphernalia all the latest information it needs.
