Word of Welcome

Dear Sir or Madam,

In 2016, annual National Conference on Health Economy will host over 600 invited decision makers from science, business administration and politics. This year, we will focus on #Health2016 – Health Economy in the Digital World.                  

We in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern were faster than other federal states to recognise the opportunities that the health economy has to offer. Today, this sector is one of the most important areas of growth in our federal state and a driver of employment. More than 100,000 men and women currently work in this sector; that's one in seven jobs.

I would like to invite you to this year's conference which has become THE meeting place for experts in the field of health economy. During the event you will have the unique opportunity to learn about innovative economic projects, discuss current research questions and establish new partnerships or intensify your business contact. I am convinced that the meeting in Rostock-Warnemünde will advance and strengthen the health economy in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Welcome to Rostock, become inspired by our conference and our wonderful federal state!

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