Mitsubishi Corporation to Set Up Hospital Management Venture in Myanmar
Venture aims to provide Japanese quality medical care and help improve healthcare standards in Myanmar

TOKYO, Mar 28, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) has agreed to form a hospital management joint venture in Myanmar with plans to open a general hospital in Yangon in 2020. MC will hold a 30% equity share in the joint venture, while Yee Shin Holdings (Yee Shin) and Capital Diamond Star Group (CDSG) will share the remaining 70%.

MC's involvement in the field of healthcare primarily through the distribution and sales of medical devices and supplies, but the company regards hospital management as a growth field over the medium- to long-term. This project is a first step in pursuit of this area, aiming to engage in hospital management in fast-growing Myanmar. In Myanmar, many people travel abroad to receive medical services in neighboring countries such as Thailand and Singapore. The new joint venture will construct a 300-bed general hospital in Yangon, equipped with the capacity to provide high quality medical care. Leveraging CDSG's diversified business network in Myanmar, the hospital will be constructed in the integrated development complex "Capital City"(2). Yee Shin will provide hospital management expertise, developed through its management experience of two hospitals in Mandalay.

MC will complement CDSG and Yee Shin's strengths by bringing in Japanese quality medical care to the joint venture. The joint venture aims to realize safe, high-quality healthcare services locally in Myanmar, contributing to the overall improvement of medical standards in the country.
