With Abu Dhabi looking to stimulate its economy and inject a healthy mix of investment, the capital has rolled out several initiatives. Just last week, the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi, signed an MoU with the Medical Tourism Association to position Abu Dhabi as a global medical destination.
The MoU agreement aims to build a medical tourism proposition for consumer markets in several key areas including Russia, China, India and across the GCC.
Saif Saeed Ghobash, Undersecretary of DCT Abu Dhabi, said: “This agreement between our two organisations is in line with our mandate to promote Abu Dhabi on the world stage and to support Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030, which is designed to guide our emirate’s growth and development. The experience and knowledge shared under this MoU will greatly enhance the emirate’s ability to appeal to our intended markets as we look to increase the contribution of medical tourism to the UAE’s economy.”
