V Anniversary International exhibition of medical tourism,
SPA&Wellness – Healthcare Travel Expo!
On behalf of the Committee on Family Matters, Youth Policy, Sports and Tourism of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, I sincerely congratulate you on the opening of the V International exhibition of medical tourism. Medical tourism shows the strong potential of our country on the world stage and promotes international cooperation and collaboration of experts of this industry.
Ukraine has an advantageous geographical position, so it has unique recreational resources, strong traditions and a great school for health professionals as the part of its potential for development of tourism and resort business. This combination attracts tourists from around the world who visit Ukraine in order to get a wide range of healthcare and related services.
Now our country is interested in development of domestic medical tourism. Therefore, the Committee on Family Matters, Youth Policy, Sports and Tourism of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supports the International exhibition of medical tourism.
The exhibition promotes awareness of visitors and state guests of the high professional level of medical services in Ukraine and abroad, breaks the barriers arising at potential patients who decide to travel to foreign countries or to come to Ukraine.
Highly topical business program of the event allows to find new partners, establish business contacts, to get acquainted with tendencies of medical and health tourism development.
I wish you all a productive work at the exhibition, interesting offers and new possibilities!
