Trade Promotion Council of India organised a webinar on the topic of  Healthcare Services: A holistic post-COVID roadmap on August 8 at 3:00 pm IST. The webinar featured an expert panel that discussed the experiences and learnings from the pandemic and the strategic roadmap to make India a global healthcare hub. 

India has a strong standing in healthcare services exports, thanks to highly qualified English speaking medical professionals, presence of world class hospitals, low cost quality treatment, capabilities in clinical trials and a rich legacy of traditional healthcare systems like Yoga, Siddha, naturopathy and Ayurveda. The Reserve Bank of India, in its publication dated 29th April’22, notes that in order to achieve the indicative services exports target of US$ 1 trillion by 2030, the services export basket needs to be diversified. The healthcare segment is one area that can be leveraged to attain this end.

Focus areas that were discussed during the session included:

 Impact of COVID-19 on global approach to healthcare
● Implications for trade in healthcare services via various modes
● Increased role of digital healthcare delivery post-pandemic and learnings
● India’s experience with COVID-19 and the road ahead for healthcare policy
● How AYUSH/wellness therapies can play a role in boosting Indian healthcare services exports
