Gyeonggi-do will host the “2022 Kazakhstan-Gyeonggi-do International Healthcare Promotion Forum” over the course of two days from October 20 to 21 at Almaty, Kazakhstan, to support healthcare institutions in Gyeonggi-do to successfully venture overseas.


Healthcare staff members and working level staff members from the three hospitals of NHIS Ilsan Hospital, Cha University Ilsan Medical Center, and Sam Hospital will visit Kazakhstan. Staff members from the four hospitals of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, the Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital, Ajou University Medical Center, and Ohkims Plastic Surgery will join the event online.



On the 20th, there will be a healthcare seminar at the Royal Tulip Almaty Hotel in Kazakhstan to promote healthcare services in Gyeonggi-do, as well as a one-on-one business seminar between participating healthcare institutions and foreign agencies.

On the 21st, there will be multidisciplinary patient consulting meetings for 100 patients in Kazakhstan who have difficulties visiting Korea due to the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic. The meetings will be provided in partnership with six hospitals in Gyeonggi-do.


Central Asia, including Kazakhstan, is an area that has maintained close and friendly relationships with Gyeonggi-do in the healthcare sector. From 2011, Gyeonggi-do has built close cooperative relationships with the Ministry of Healthcare of Kazakhstan and regional governments of the country including Almaty, Aktobe, Akmola, Mangystau, and Nur-Sultan by signing an MOU to enhance the healthcare sectors.


Gyeonggi-do has engaged in marketing activities for strategic countries including Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan in response to rising expectations for a newly reformed international healthcare sector after the COVID-19 pandemic, in hopes that the related industries will recover quickly. The provincial government of Gyeonggi-do will continue to take a keen interest in and support the promotional activities of Medical Gyeonggi’s healthcare services and engage in international partnerships in the healthcare sector.
