The US healthcare sector is booming and many US companies are now looking to sell their services to other countries, according to the head of the American Federation of Government Employees union.
Read more”The healthcare sector in the US is booming, and I think the big health care companies are looking to expand their operations and do other things overseas,” Dr. Richard Trumka, the president of AFGE, said.
“There’s a huge opportunity for the government to become part of that growth.”
The healthcare industry employs about 17.5 million Americans, according a report by the Institute of Medicine, and a lot of these workers live in urban areas.
That means the government could be a natural fit.
Trumka said the US healthcare system is so highly fragmented that the government and private companies are often unable to negotiate for better prices.
The US government can help companies to keep prices down and provide incentives to businesses to increase profits.
The US Department of Health and Human Services says it is the largest employer in the healthcare industry.
But there are a lot more federal jobs in the private sector.
The private sector employs 2.3 million workers, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The private sector is also increasingly becoming a target for foreign competitors, as the United States tries to attract foreign medical staff.
In the past year, more than two dozen foreign-owned health care firms have entered the US market, according with The Wall Street Journal.
But there is also a growing trend for the US government to step in.
The Obama administration has been looking to increase its presence in healthcare since it took office.
The Department of Homeland Security has increased its presence and has expanded the number of agents working in healthcare.
The administration also recently signed an agreement with the United Nations General Assembly, which will expand efforts to work with foreign countries.
The deal is designed to reduce health disparities in the developing world, and provide more resources to countries struggling to combat diseases.
The new agreement was negotiated after the US joined the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to limit warming at a global level.
