I'm glad that I was able to share and I learned a lot. I learned that I need to continue to come to the Ministerial Summit to be in a better position to support the countries, and I learned in fact many countries in Latin America and the Caribbean are keenly interested in medical tourism

We could see the latest trends in medical tourism and where the industry is going, we learned a lot for example, from a marketing session we learned what the best usage of social media is, which is something we never thought about but it is very important for customer interactions.
