AMMAN — Jordan and Australia on Thursday explored ways to enhance medical cooperation.

During a meeting that included Health Minister Ali Hiasat, Geoff Puttick, national vice chairman of the Australia-Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Australian investors in the medical field, discussions covered ways to develop medical cooperation, especially in ophthalmology.

The Australian delegation praised the Kingdom’s “advanced” level in medicine and its popularity in the region as a medical tourism destination.

The Australians are also scheduled to visit hospitals to get a firsthand look at the sector and consider investment opportunities.
