Malta’s Healthcare Business Development Conference in Shanghai

The inaugural Maltese Healthcare Business Development Conference took place in Shanghai from August 12th to 14th. Organised by Base Malta, the event garnered significant attention and welcomed esteemed guests from various sectors. Notable attendees included local government officials from different municipalities, representatives from governmental hospitals, and private hospital operators.

The primary objective of the conference was to bolster the promotion of medical treatments available in Malta, with a primary focus on the private healthcare sector. China particularly suffers from long waiting lists for specialised European treatments and medicine. Attendees showed keen interest in broadening their services portfolios by introducing European medications and treatments within their medical establishments. Collaborative ventures with European hospitals to provide patients with specialised treatments in different cities were also explored and received considerable attention.

As the conference concluded successfully, it left an indelible mark on the landscape of healthcare business development between the two countries, fostering and promoting Malta’s healthcare services on a global stage.

Base Malta, the driving force behind this innovative series of business events, has monthly conferences planned in Shanghai and other Asian cities.
