Envoys see potential in Malaysia’s medical tourism

Ambassadors from Middle East countries see great potential in Malaysia promoting medical tourism to their home countries.

“They have been going to Singapore and the United States for medical treatment and the bills are getting higher. They are interested to come to Malaysia,” said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

This was relayed to Dr Chua during his series of meetings with some ambassadors since he took over as the party president in March.

He met with the ambassadors from Middle East countries and North Korea at Wisma MCA here yesterday. The ambassadors also informed Dr Chua that more could be done to attract Chinese businessmen from Malaysia to invest in Middle East countries.

“I told them that there is hardly any information from their countries about trade promotions, and that they need to do more promotion,” he said.

On North Korea, Dr Chua said the delegates had invited the party to visit the country and he promised to respond accordingly.

MCA, said the president, would continue to foster good relationship with ambassadors and look for overseas investment opportunities for local businessmen.
