Thailand is one of the fastest aging societies in the world – 20% of its nearly 70 million population are now over 60 years old, and in little over 10 years’ time this is expected to reach 30%. Thailand is also regarded as one of the world’s leading hubs for medical tourism, as well as one of the favorite destinations for foreign retirees.
Thailand has an extremely strong private sector, competing with their world-class hospitals and ‘world’s leading specialty clinics’. As an example, Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS) with its 50+ hospitals in Thailand, is regarded among the 4 largest hospital groups in the world by market capitalization value. As a new trend, these private medical/healthcare providers are starting to link with leading hotel chains to offer wellness services for tourists.
The Thai public sector can also offer interesting opportunities for Finnish solutions, especially leading University Hospitals, with their medical innovation and geriatric excellence centers, as well as various pilot projects for senior care services. Soon-to-be-open ACAI (ASEAN Center for Active Aging and Innovation), and the Center at the Public Health Ministry compound could also offer interesting collaboration opportunities.
In addition, Thailand’s start-up ecosystem, especially in the digital health sector, is very vibrant and interested in collaborations with foreigners.
The visit is a great opportunity for speeches, face-to-face meetings, and networking.
