Yulia Sokolovska, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, visited Expo 2020 (Dubai, United Arab Emirates) as part of the official delegation.
"The Ukrainian delegation in Dubai aimed to develop and specificate the agreements reached during the visit of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to the UAE," the press service of the Head of State informs.
During a meeting with Under Secretary of Health and Prevention of the United Arab Emirates, Dr. Amin Hussein Al Amiri, it was agreed to strengthen cooperation between the ministries of health of the two countries. A visit of UAE officials to Ukraine and signing a memorandum of cooperation were planned. The purpose of the document is the exchange of information on research, including biomedical and economic, in the health care system; exchange of scientists, experts and assistance in training and advanced training of specialists; improvement of information systems in the field of health and epidemiology, including communications, statistical methods, etc.; attracting investments in health care in Ukraine.
Another important area in the development of bilateral relations may be the establishment of tourist flow to Ukraine for medical purposes. The UAE residents are attracted by the opportunity to undergo rehabilitation in Ukraine, which can be combined with a vacation in a cooler climate in summer. Of particular interest are the models of long-term rehabilitation, not sufficient in the Arab country. Addressing these issues, the Ukrainian delegation visited one of the leading providers of medical services in Dubai.
The President’s Office believes that the presentation of Ukrainian developments at the exhibition in Dubai will allow to promote domestic medical goods and services in world markets and the markets of the Middle East. After all, more than 3,500 exhibitors from all over the world take part in the Arab Health exhibition. It presents a wide range of medical goods and services based on technology and innovation. The event brings together more than 56,000 health professionals.
