During the signing ceremony, Chairman Wang said from the bottom of his heart that Shenyang will take the lead in the revitalization of China’s northeast.
The large-scale cultural tourism project will occupy an area of 4000 mu which includes a cultural tourism city, sports park and a cluster of vacation hotels. The international hospital will have a floor space of 400,000 square meters offering medical, rehabilitation and healthy lifestyle services. The hospital will be run by top international hospital management teams and technical experts.
