South African medical officials who came together with President Jocob Zuma to attend the G20 Summit in Hangzhou said they hope to cooperate with FAHZU, which they have confirmed is a top-grade hospital.
The medical officials expressed the desire when they visited the Hospital on Monday to say thanks for the medical service provided by FAHZU during the Summit. FAHZU was chosen to be the medical service provider for the South African delegation by the medical officials after they made an inspection of FAHZU at the end of last month.
"We expect that we will come back soon and make detailed discussion with you about the cooperation," said Dr. Zakes Kasiso Moteme.
Moteme told FAHZU President Wang Weilin that South Africa will hold big international meetings in 2020 and "we are making preparations for that", adding that they hope FAHZU will send doctors to their country to work together with them.
Wang said the Hospital is happy to accept the invitation and cherishes the opportunity to start medical cooperation with the African country thousands of miles away.
"Many of our specialties have reached the advanced world level, such as the infectious disease department, organ transplantation, urology and gastroenterology," Wang said. "We may start our cooperation by dispatching overseas students to each other, arranging exchanges between young doctors of both countries, and working together to make scientific researches."
Before the end of their meeting with Wang and other FAHZU leaders and doctors, Moteme wrote a letter of thanks on a piece of red paper for everything that the Hospital had done for the South African delegation.
"Only one thing is not so satisfactory," he joked, "Your doctors speak good English and we simply don't a chance to learn and say some Chinese."
