Government invests six million Euros in Health tourism this year

Government invests six million Euros in Health tourism this year

Presiding today over the ceremony that marked the symbolic beginning of the remodelling of the Ferraria Thermal Spa and the renewal of the respective beach area, which involve an investment of four million Euros, Carlos César considered that this investment is very important in terms of the “Azores destination.”
The President of the Government alluded to the fact that Health Tourism has become one of the sectors with greatest potential concerning world tourism, and he said that the Government investments – not only in the Ferraria Thermal Spa, but also in the Furnas, Carapacho and Varadouro Thermal Spas – are an important milestone for the creation of an Azores tourist product. A public investment, which will reach six million Euros only this year, is expected for the implementation of this policy.
“In every case, our major task is to search and encourage private initiatives in this sector which will certainly have a promising future in the Azores,” added Carlos César.
Hence, and in the case of Ferraria Thermal Spa, the Secretariat of Economy has received instructions to immediately start gathering the interest of private companies regarding the management of this thermal complex, as well as the preparation of the respective award.
This place, whose features will be preserved, will be provided with new infrastructures, such as a restaurant, which will complement the basic thermal concept, public swimming pools and a careful land-planning that will enhance the enjoyment of the place and the exploration of its unique features.
As Carlos César explained, “this concern for preservation, reinforced by the inclusion of this natural monument in the recently created S. Miguel Natural Park, was present in the development of the entire project which also has a strong landscape component.”
