Lawmakers in Phillipines to promote medical tourism for more jobs

Incoming 1-Pacman Party-list Rep. Mikee Romero said on Monday he is helping the incoming Duterte administra-tion in crafting measures that can generate millions of job for Filipinos for the next six years.

Among the priorities of Romero is medical tourism that makes Thailand famous and now contributing USD25 billion in government’s coffer annually.

He said that they had already well-trained and internationally renowned doctors who were just waiting for gov-ernment support to open the medical tourism in the country.

“Imagine if we can get a share of at least USD10 billion worth of medical tourism from Thailand, that would trans-late to about 500,000 additional job opportunities for Filipinos,” Romero said.
