Hainan unveils plans for becoming a world-class medical tourism hub

Published on : Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Southern China’s Hainan province has unveiled plans towards turning the tropical island into a world-class medical tourism hub, combining high-end medical tourism with characteristic Chinese healthcare.

 

Tourism-related activities in Hainan are being encouraged such as medical tourism, horse racing, sports betting and an instant lottery.

 

Focusing on four key areas — medical treatment, medical cosmetology, rehabilitation and health promotion — Hainan will introduce internationally renowned institutions, insurance providers and intermediary service agencies to build a high-end foundation for the international medical tourism market.

 

In 10 years, Hainan is expected to become a major medical tourism destination with total annual business revenue reaching 40 billion Yuan ($5.84 billion).

 

Eight major tourism projects will be developed, covering fields like cancer treatment and rehabilitation, fertility therapy, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease treatment and rehabilitation, environmental healing and sports recuperation, traditional Chinese medicine and spiritual retreat.

 

Medical tourism has now become one of the fastest-growing emerging industries globally and Hainan has all the conditions for developing it.

 

As part of the plan, Hainan will tap its characteristic resources of vast coastal areas, tropical rainforests and hot springs for coming up with innovative healthcare and leisure products, and develop a high-end and characteristic medical tourism service system.
