Word of Welcome

Ladies and gentlemen,

The health sector is one of the key economic sectors in our federal state. Medical technology, biotechnology, a well-developed infrastructure comprising hospitals and rehab facilities, our outstanding position as a tourism region and healthy food are important pillars of this sector. Around 100,000 men and women currently work in this sector, or putting it another way, that’s one in seven jobs in the federal state.

The National Conference on the Health Economy has become the meeting place for sector experts from Germany and abroad. Every year, around 600 participants from the world of science, business, administration and politics join us in Rostock-Hohe Düne to discuss developments in the health sector, to collect ideas and define concepts to tackle the challenges posed by demographic change.

This is the 11th time that the National Conference on the Health Economywill be hosted in Rostock-Warnemünde. Under the motto “Enjoy health!”, the topics on this year’s programme include healthy food and the influence of culture, especially music, on health and quality of life up into old age. On top of that, current issues, such as health at the workplace and concepts to secure demand for qualified workers, will also be discussed. Our partner land this year is Portugal.

I cordially invite you now to take part. Visit our wonderful federal state and join in the discourse!

Erwin Sellering
Minister President of the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
