He said the figure was expected to double by the end of December based on the number of health tourist arrivals to the country.
“The target this year is RM630 million in revenue from the strategies, promotional efforts and intensive marketing undertaken by the Malaysian Health Tourism Council (MHTC) to ensure that Malaysia becomes a major health tourism destination,” he said to a question from lawmaker, Dr Nik Mazian Nik Mohamad at the Parliament sitting, in Kuala Lumpur, on Tuesday.
Nik Mazian wanted to know the number of health tourists to Malaysia, the estimated revenue earned from health tourism and the number of medical centres from which they sought treatment.
Dr Hilmi said the efforts undertaken by the MHTC proved fruitful as the number of health tourists to the country increased each year, thus giving a big impact to the industry.
