If you are a health tech company and you have international expansion in your growth strategy, come to find out more about Thailand and new opportunities that might be awaiting you. BusinessOulu has invited Mr. Kai Tuorila, a Counsellor for Trade & Investment at the Finnish Embassy in Bangkok to introduce you to the topic of business expansion to the Thai market.
Thailand had nearly 4 million medical tourists in pre-pandemic times, and same time its own transformation into an ageing society has been among the fastest in the world. Thailand’s strong private medical sector players are competing with their 5-start hospitals and mega investments. They are partnering with the hospitality sector to offer future wellness services. Also, many Thai public health sector experts are very knowledgeable about Finnish rehabilitation and ‘active ageing’ knowhow. If all this sounds interesting and you want to hear more, join us on Thursday 11th August at BusinessAsema in Oulu.
