The Kingdom, Hawari said, should take advantage of its natural areas suited for medical tourism, such as the Dead Sea, which may be a good destination for patients with heart and respiratory diseases.

The minister called on investors to consider medical tourism projects in the area, noting that Jordan is capable of building a world-class medical tourism sector that “no one can compete with”.

The minister recommended that the sector explore new markets, such as Eastern Europe, where patients may experience delays in medical operations due to waiting lists.

Jordan could market the integration of medical tourism into regular tourism, he pointed out.

Furthermore, highly skilled medical professionals are returning from abroad to the Kingdom, which also boasts advanced medical centers, Hawari noted.
