Turkish medical company to invest in healthcare sector

Current public sector health infrastructure is insufficient to meet growing health needs



A delegation of Turkish company M/s MediContinental led by its Managing Partner Zeynep Dayioglu held a meeting with the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Friday and held a meeting with ICCI President Amir Waheed, to explore opportunities in Pakistan’s healthcare sector.

The members said that MediContinental of Turkey was providing services in various fields of healthcare including transplant surgery, cancer treatment, heart surgery, plastic, bariatric and spine surgeries, dental and eye treatment.
They said that they were interested in bringing these services to Pakistan to provide international standard health services to the Pakistani people. They said that they also intended to bring a team of doctors to work in far-flung areas of Pakistan on voluntary basis so that people of such areas could avail quality health services. They sought the cooperation and support of ICCI in realising these objectives.
Addressing the delegation, ICCI President said that Pakistan is a country of rising population which offers great potential for investment in healthcare sector. He said the current public sector health infrastructure in the country is not sufficient to meet the growing health services needs of people. He urged that Turkish investors should explore Pakistan for investment and joint ventures in health sector.
Appreciating the role of M/s MediContinental for providing quality services to the Turkish people he stressed that they should enhance their presence in Pakistan so that Pakistani people could also benefit from their services.
He assured that ICCI would extend possible support in connecting the Turkish investors with right counterparts in Pakistan.
Murat C Dayioglu and Zahid Hamid were also the part of delegation. -NNI
