Health Desk--4th May, 2018: Experts at exhibitions on Thursday said there are some countries which largely depend on Bangladesh for medical tourists and selling health service related equipment.

They said, to cash in on the growing demand from Bangladesh's rising mid-income people, some hospitals of India, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia have either opened their liaison offices or hooked clients through their consultants in Bangladesh.

Addressing the opening of three exhibitions—11th Meditex Bangladesh, International Health Tourism and Services Expo and 4th Bangladesh Clinical Lab Expo, the speakers said these.

The exhibitions were organised by CEMS Global at International Convention City Bashundhara.

The opening ceremony was presided over by Mehrun N Islam, managing director of CEMS Global.

Among others, Lawmaker Salima Begum and Priti Chakrabarty, director of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry, were present on the occasion.
