About the Market

As healthcare turns costlier in developed countries, the medical market in developing countries is expected to grow remarkably. Cost-effective treatments, availability of inexpensive flights, increased marketing, and online consumer information are driving the market. This has led to the emergence of several medical tourism corridors like India, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Mexico and Costa Rica; with India having the second largest number of accredited facilities. Chennai, Mumbai, AP, and NCR are the favored medical tourism destinations in India. The most common types of procedures pursued by patients include elective cosmetic surgery, dentistry, organ transplantation, cardiac surgery and orthopedic surgery Major corporations such as Tata, Fortis, Max, Wockhardt, and Apollo Hospitals have made significant investments in setting up modern hospitals and tourism-related services to cater to the visitors from abroad. Apollo has been a forerunner of medical tourism in India and attracts patients from Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The group has tied up with hospitals in Mauritius, Tanzania, Bangladesh and Yemen; besides running a hospital in Sri Lanka and managing a hospital in Dubai.

About the Geography

Hong Kong is a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China. It is the world’s freest and eighth largest economy. Hong Kong has no tariffs on imported goods and levies excise duty only on hydrocarbon oil, hard alcohol, tobacco, and methyl alcohol. It is the second largest recipient as well as supplier of FDI in the world. The country was ranked fifth easiest country to do business, by Doing Business.

Hong Kong acts as a bridgehead to China’s production, has an efficient banking system, favorable tax measures, excellent infrastructure, strong government, light legislations, well-educated skilled workers, and freedom of information. In 2003, Hong Kong SAR government launched CIES facilitated entry for foreign investors through investment into permissible assets, without the need to establish or join a business. Foreign companies can be set up freely, register their brands and the director of the company need not be a citizen or resident of Hong Kong. The only drawbacks are the high cost of living, elevated salaries, dependence on the financial sector, and exposure to global market risks.

With the presence of all major firms in the small region of Hong Kong, conducting business becomes very easy. Hong Kong is deemed to be the safest place to invest in the South-East Asia region.
