THAILAND RISES AS A MEDICAL HUB
For a while now, Thailand has been internationally acclaimed as a medical tourist destination due to Bangkok’s world-class hospitals. Furthermore, its underlying healthcare system is helping in the transformation of Southeast Asia’s second largest economy into a medical hub, which is attracting investors and researchers in biotechnology, which includes genomics, biopharmaceuticals, and vaccines in addition to high-tech medical devices. Despite the pandemic, investment into Thailand’s healthcare sector has risen from 123 percent in project numbers in value over the same time last year to 170 percent this year. Two key factors influence this rise, which are incentives offered by the BOI to qualify Thai and foreign owned companies such as tax breaks of up to 13 years and smart visas, and the other is Thailand’s successful track record of containing the spread of the virus up to this date.
