POSITION PAPER
EuroCham's Healthcare Committee has recently published a position paper on "Collaborative Opportunities to Address Healthcare Transformation in Singapore". 

Excerpt:
Singapore's healthcare infrastructure is world renowned, having earned numerous accolades and has been lauded for its high efficiency and outcomes. However, rising healthcare costs brought about by an ageing population and increased prevalence of chronic diseases has seen the Ministry of Finance boosting healthcare spending to S$10 billion in 2017. 

The EuroCham Healthcare Committee supports the transformation of the healthcare industry in Singapore and the measures taken by the health ministry to rein in healthcare inflation while improving healthcare delivery. Committee members believe that strong collaboration between the public and the private sector is necessary for the efficient administration of sustainable healthcare solutions that will be beneficial for all stakeholders.

For more information relating to the paper, please contact Mr Elgin Seah.
