medical-tourism-hubMalaysia’s health tourism has contributed in a major way to the county’s overall tourism sector by increasing the inbound tourist arrivals.


“Tourists in the health industry mostly want to obtain medical services in this country because they trust our doctors have come from the best universities such as in Russia, India and China, and they are confident to come here to seek treatment,” Tourism and Culture Minister, Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said in reply to a supplementary question from Loke Siew Fook (DAP-Seremban) on how far the health tourism industry had contributed to the country’s economy.


He said this followed the provision of health and medical care that was competitive and the best compared to Malaysia’ neighbouring countries.

Mohamed Nazri said Malaysia also offered the best after-care services as it had many beautiful holiday resorts to help in the recuperating process.


“We have also won the world’s top awards in providing the best health tourism services for three years in a row, therefore this industry is definitely important in helping the country’s tourism industry,” he said.
