The 5-day China Pharma Week will also include plant visits, the Women in Leadership Forum, and Night of Huangpu River Cruise Networking Dinner, which are collectively designed to build a more effective socializing platform for Chinese and global pharmaceutical enterprises.
As a world-renowned exhibition for the pharmaceutical industry, CPhI and P-MEC China encompasses the entire supply chain from APIs, fine chemical and intermediates and excipients, through to dosage forms, preparations, natural extracts, biopharmaceuticals, contract research, pharmaceutical machinery, packaging materials, laboratory instruments, and pharmaceutical logistics.
More than 2800 exhibitors will greet more than 40,000 professional visitors from more than 120 countries to sustain the business relationships that will drive tomorrow’s growth.
Rutger Oudejans, Brand Director Pharma at UBM EMEA, said: “Pharma R&D and production in China has grown both in terms of volume production and evolved its quality and regulatory environment rapidly in the last few years. Concurrently, CPhI China has grown to be the single most influential meeting point for pharma suppliers and customers, and this year we are introducing CPhI China Pharma Week to offer an even more comprehensive and bilingual knowledge and networking platform, covering all aspects of the world’s second largest pharma market.”
“With the government investing heavily in R&D research, new regulations such MAH opening-up the market for contract services, an enormous ingredients sector, along with an expanding middle class, there are now many new opportunities for both domestic and international companies,” he continued.
“That’s why attending this week-long programme of content-led analysis and insights, coupled with specialist networking events, is absolutely essential for any executive looking to launch, expand or find partners in this vast pharma economy.”
