On August 13, 2021, Erick Tohir, minister of State-owned Enterprises (SOES), announced that China will establish a special economic zone for healthcare in Bali in two years’ time. The special economic zones have great potential for people who want to receive different medical services.
Each year, approximately 600,000 nationals receive medical care abroad; That number has dropped dramatically because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Indonesia should use this momentum to provide treatment that meets international standards. Yesterday, we signed with the Mayo Clinic, one of the best hospitals in the world, to be an advisor to Pertamedika IHC to build an international standard hospital.
Mr Erich is optimistic that Pertamedika IHC, a state-controlled hospital, will be able to provide the best service to patients. Not long ago, Pertamedika IHC won the award for “Best Hospital in Southeast Asia to handle COVID-19”.
Eric concluded that we can improve the international scale, transparency/integrity of state-owned enterprises, and we must continue to do so.
