Taiwan opens health centers at airports to boost medical tourism

Taipei, Dec. 28 (CNA) The Ministry of Health and Welfare on Saturday unveiled four international health centers at airports across Taiwan, as part of the government's efforts to boost medical tourism. The four "International Health Liaison Centers," located at Taipei (Songshan) International Airport, Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, Taichung International Airport and Kaohsiung International Airport, will provide health consultation and enhance Taiwan's medical care image, according to the ministry. The establishment of such health centers was part of a free economic pilot zone project, which opens free trade districts at harbors and international airports to foreign investments (including those from China). In addition, more than 170,000 people are expected to visit Taiwan for medical treatment under the project, Kuan Chung-ming, the country's top economic planner said in July. (By James Lee)
