In order to develop a specific Medical Tourism Policy for the state, Mangal Prabhat Lodha, Minister of Tourism, Skills, Employment, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Women and Child Development, has requested input from the medical and travel communities.
He shared his observations, stating that “in India, when Medical Tourism is mentioned, the local populace exhibits emotional and religious responses. To create value, maintain operations with cutting-edge technology, and retain medical specialists, capital inflow is essential to sustain the flow. However, one must remember that setting up hospitals involves significant infrastructure costs. To move the vertical, seriousness is required. Guidelines give a Policy a framework for what direction it needs to go, thus it’s critical that the sector contributes to driving this section.
Lodha was addressing the crowd yesterday at the Indian Chambers of Commerce (IMC)’s Mumbai headquarters during a Wellness & Medical Value Tourism Conclave.
