RM25 million agreed for MHTC in 2020


Commenting on the news, Sherene Azli, CEO of MHTC says:

“We believe that this continued faith in the healthcare travel industry will further propel Malaysia’s profile in the international landscape as a leading global destination for healthcare. Our success to date has been cemented by the dedication of our stakeholders, namely, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and Ministry of Economic Affairs, Malaysia’s leading private healthcare providers, government agencies and numerous industry players across the value chain. This support will go a long way in bringing Malaysia Healthcare to new heights while making significant positive economic impact to the nation – especially since we will be hosting Malaysia Year of Healthcare Travel 2020 (MyHT2020)" 

The Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah has also recently said that the MyHT2020 campaign, run in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia 2020 campaign, is aiming to attract 2 million medical travellers to Malaysia next year, bringing in revenue receipts of RM2 billion.
