The Chinese Embassy in Dhaka also helped arrange the trip for these patients, by organising the medical visas. 

China seeks to promote the affordable and state-of-the-art medical facilities in Kunming, which is just two and a half hours flight from Dhaka.

Hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshis travel abroad for medical care mostly in India, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. They even go to Japan and the USA. It now appears China wants a slice of the action.
