A centre of Chinese-Croatian health tourism was formally opened last week at the premises of the Medikol healthcare facility in Zagreb by Chinese Ambassador in Zagreb, Zhaoming Hu.
The centre, which practices traditional Chinese medicine and which is the result of cooperation of the two countries' medical tourism sectors, was given support during the recent 16+1 format summit meeting in Dubrovnik.
The ambassador recalled that during the recent visit of the Chinese delegation led by Prime Minister Li Keqiang, 10 documents on cooperation were signed, and some of them concerned tourism and connecting traditional Chinese medicine and Croatian tourism.
All this will make Croatia a more favourable tourist destination, the diplomat said. Three Chinese physicians are currently working in the centre. This cooperation started in 2013. An executive of Houliping TCM Hospital Group, Liping Hou, was also present at the opening ceremony.
Medikol Management Board chairman Ivan Rajkovic said that the Chinese-Croatian cooperation in health tourism had great potential.
