Thailand’s largest hospital group will set up a hospital in Myanmar next year to profit from the country’s expanding economy, a senior company official announced last week.

Dr Chatree Daungnet, vice president and chief executive of Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Plc (BGH), told the Bangkok Post on Saturday, December 22 that the company hopes Myanmar will improve regulations related to acquiring land, transfering money and business ownership by the time BGH establishes a local branch in 2013.
