Turkey was able to overcome the pandemic crisis with minimal loss
Recep Tayyip Erdogan made a statement at the opening of the center: "In 2023, Turkey's medical tourism sector plans to host 1.5 million foreign citizens and thereby carve out a $10 billion niche in the global medical services market."
“Thanks to the infrastructure investments of the last 20 years, Turkey has been able to overcome the pandemic crisis with minimal damage to the country. In recent years, we have relied on the development of domestic pharmaceuticals and the medical industry,” Erdogan underlined.
According to the president, the pandemic has shown humanity that the healthcare sector is no less important for national interests than the defense industry.
