Medi-Venture 2015: large space for healthcare development in Vietnam

May 08, 2015 | 15:00
In recent years, the Vietnamese health industry has become a thriving market, sparking an influx of foreign investment. According to a recent World Bank’s study Vietnemese health expenditure per capita rose sharply from $88 in 2010 to $111 in 2014 and is still holding a lot of room to develop.

As Vietnam flourishes as a rising market for the medical service industry, capturing increasing levels of foreign investment, national delegates were consecutively invited to the leading Asian Pacific M&A Healthcare Business Summit in Singapore, Medi-Venture Business Summit Asia.

This year, Doctor Tran Quoc Bao, the Group Business and Marketing director of TMMC Healthcare, will be featured as the keynote speaker of the event, for the second time. He is the only representative from Vietnam receiving the position which he has introduced about the opportunities for knowing deeply about Vietnam healthcare market and investment. At the previous event, Dr Tran was successful in securing a multi-million joint venture project with a Singapore Stock Exchange listed group for his previous employer.

“Being a national panellist makes me very proud, as well as pressured, and considerate to deliver the image of Vietnam, as an emerging country and a preferential hub for healthcare and wellness service. It is a great opportunity and also a big threat. I wish one day, such an event will be hosted in Vietnam, in order to show the world how good we are in delivering healthcare services as well as becoming a good target for healthcare investments by international financial institutes,” he said.

An annual business conference running on its 3rd year, Medi-Ventures Business Summit 2015 is a unique platform for regional top players and international companies in the medical and aesthetic businesses to discuss new cross-border start-ups, fund transactions between investors and operators, foster business development & licensing opportunities between principal hospital owners and to put together movers and shakers in rapid fire case studies on emerging and difficult markets in Asia.

The business summit is a chance for professors and developers to exchange information in the Asia region, allowing those concerned about regional healthcare services to gain more opportunities and better understand the obstacles of penetrating into countries such as Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand etc. The summit is highly regarded as a valuable forum to provide general information for developing healthcare service management in different markets.
