Covering an area of 240 square meters, the pavilion is offering hospital products and technologies as well as medical laboratory equipment, IRNA quoted CHTHO Deputy Director Morteza Rahmani-Movahhed as saying on Tuesday.

Moreover, pharmaceutical products, gym apparatus and workout accessories as well as organic products are on display, Rahmani-Movahhed added.
