The Thai tourism industry is undergoing several changes with regards to the types of tourists coming in the country, the increasing regional and global competition between countries to attract tourists and people’s increasing reliance upon digital mediums, mobile devices and social media.
With the opening of Myanmar’s economy, the healthcare sector has important difficulties to tackle to provide access to more and better services for a larger part of the population. In this transition, the country also presents very interesting opportunities for healthcare businesses and professionals.
With a growing population and personal disposable income, the healthcare sector is looking very attractive in Southeast Asia. Healthcare expenditure is still low but steadily growing, and though the quality of services provided is uneven between the different countries, it is also improving throughout the region.
With a high quality of medical services and affordable prices, Thailand has become a major hub for medical tourism in Asia. Thailand’s facilities, technologies, quality of medical services and expertise all factor in to attract healthcare services of medical devices, pharmaceuticals and medical food.
