Taiwan medical tourism promoting group to visit china

A medical tourism promotion group organized by the semi-official Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) will leave for China June 22 to attract more Chinese visitors, TAITRA said Tuesday in a statement.
The TAITRA said it decided to lead the delegation to Shanghai, Quanzhou and Xiamen to sell Taiwan's high quality medical services in anticipation of the arrival of more tourists from China in July and the opening of direct weekend charter flights between the two sides.
While in the three Chinese cities, the TAITRA group will visit local health care facilities, Chinese and Taiwanese-invested enterprises, and travel agencies to explore business opportunities and bilateral cooperative ventures.
The delegation is composed of representatives of 12 leading Taiwanese medical facilities, including Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Shin Kong Wu Ho Su Memorial Hospital in Taipei, Changhua Christian Hospital and Show Chwan Memorial Hospital in central Taiwan and Kaohsiung Medical University's Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital in southern Taiwan, the semi-official organization said.
The TAITRA has first targeted cities in some of China's affluent coastal regions to lure Chinese tourists who might be interested in taking advantage of Taiwan's medical tourism opportunities and receive high-end medical care.
The council has recommended that Chinese visitors to Taiwan undergo plastic surgery, get dental implants, receive cardiological care or have full physicals -- areas in which Taiwan is strong.
