In his welcome speech, Syed Mojibul Huq said that the present government is giving enormous emphasis to the development of the medical system. The budget allocation in the medical sector is also increasing gradually. Along with our economic development, the standard of living is also increasing, he said.So, many people now travel abroad for medical treatment due to their financial capability. As part of that, many people travel to Thailand every year for medical treatment. We have had good relations with Thailand for a long time. We want to strengthen this relationship even more in the future for medical services purposes, said Huq.
