Malta’s accession to the European Union in 2004 and the eurozone in 2008 without doubt made the country more attractive for the manufacturing sector primarily due to the single market’s fundamental pillars of free movement of goods, services, capital and people.
In an interview with MaltaProfile, Minister for Health Chris Fearne submits that the sector's future as a social service, but also as a newfound economic niche, bodes well. Outlining how longstanding issues are being addressed he paints a picture of a health sector future etched in e-health, technology and innovation.
MaltaProfile spoke to Dr Josie Muscat about the country’s potential as a medical hub as well as the Group’s plans for the future after the sale of their Sliema hospital fell through. He thinks Malta can learn a lot from Turkey’s health tourism industry.
