WELCOME MESSAGE FROM CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG

It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2nd International Health and Wealth Conference, which will be held in George Town, Penang, Malaysia, from October 28th to 30th, 2018.

Penang is globally famed as a destination for good medical care and is a top international medical tourism hub. The Penang State Government has a vision to make Penang a Medical City which will encompass not only hospitals but bring together the manufacturers of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, teaching hospitals and nursing colleges, that can build an entire supply chain.

Beyond Healthcare and Wellbeing services, we aim to integrate attractive complementary sectors, such as Senior and Accessible Tourism, Smart and Safe Ageing, Corporate Finance, Real Estate, Age-suitable Environment and Wealth Management. This complete ecosystem is what the International Health and Wealth Conference is talking about, bringing together global experts, who share their international expertise.

Among top speakers from the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia, are multinational decision-makers, CEOs, researchers and professionals from the private and public sector. Penang will be presenting its healthcare hub, highlighting its diversified industry and its modern facilities both foreign and domestic.

The Penang State Government intends to establish a Medical City encompassing not just healthcare but also health manufacturing, digital economy and medical tourism. Penang has new investments by 3 hospital groups, including a RM 2 billion investment by Island Hospital to build a 1,000 bed private hospital, the largest private hospital in the country. We hope that you have a productive conference and stay in Penang. Enjoy yourself, the best street food in the world.

Lim Guan Eng
Chief Minister of Penang
