The Department of Medical Tourism of the Institute of Scientific Research of the Panhellenic Medical Association has started a series of coordinated efforts to promote health tourism abroad.

The aim is to strengthen Greece’s role in the global health tourism market which amounts to 40 billion dollars.
For that reason, a conference will be held on March 28-29 in Montreal with the participation of prominent members of the scientific and business community of Greece and the Greek community in Canada.

The event is co-organized by the Athens Medical Association, the Central Union of Municipalities of Greece and the Greek Community of Montreal, which has about 80,000 Greeks, according to protothema.

The areas of IVF, ophthalmology, dermatology, dentistry, have great potential with multiple benefits for the economy.

Also, the head of the Commercial and Industrial Chamber of Athens (EVEA) and the Hellenic Union of Chambers, Konstantinos Michalos, invited Greek-American businesspeople to invest in Greece in this crucial time for the country, during his visit to New York and Washington to participate in the official White House celebrations for Greek Independence Day.

Michalos told Greek-Americans Greece offers great investments opportunities in sectors such as tourism, energy, industry, food, education and health and noted the reforms which have started to be implemented which, if continued and completed, will greatly facilitate business activity.
