Medical tourism in UAE at Dh7bn by 2010


The medical tourism industry, currently worth $56 billion worldwide, is projected to be worth $100 billion by 2012, according to latest figures.

Medical tourism, on the back of an increase in the number of such visitors, is also growing rapidly in the UAE and is expected to generate Dh7bn by 2010, says Abu Dhabi Chamber of commerce and Industry (ADCCI).

The industry in the UAE is expected to register a 15 per cent growth per annum and hopes to receive more than 11.2 million tourists by 2010.

To cater to this growing demand, the country is developing the healthcare sector, building new communities, hotels and resorts to make it a favourite destination for medical tourism. The Dubai HealthCare City and Khalefa HealthCare City are the most prominent projects in this field.
