As Asia’s healthcare market is expected to see robust growth of 7.2% in 2019, according to Frost and Sullivan, demands for healthcare technologies and innovations are expected to increase significantly particularly pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices based on advanced technology.

In Thailand, the government is loosening visa restrictions and recently launched the smart visa programme designed to enhance Thailand’s attractiveness in drawing science and technology experts, senior executives, investors and start-ups – as part of their strategic plan to become a global medical hub.
