Hainan aims to become a prime medical tourism destination

Published on : Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Hainan province in South China has disclosed plans to build the tropical island into a superlative medical tourism hub, joining together high-end medical tourism with characteristic Chinese healthcare.

 

The initiation follows a proposal disclosed a week earlier by the National Development and Reform Commission to enthuse tourism-related activities in Hainan, like medical tourism, horse racing, sports betting and an instant lottery.

 

Targeting on four main areas like medical treatment, medical cosmetology, rehabilitation and health promotion, Hainan will launch internationally well-known institutions, insurance providers and intermediary service agencies to set up a high-end foundation for the overseas medical tourism market, the plan stated.

 

In 10 years time, Hainan is expected to turn out as a key medical tourism destination with total annual business revenue reaching 40 billion yuan ($5.84 billion).

 

Eight important tourism projects will be build up, covering areas 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 turned out to be world’s fastest-growing industries, and Hainan has its exclusive conditions for developing it, Governor Shen Xiaoming said on the sidelines of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2018 in April.
