PSA 2013 Conference

2013: New Growth Models for China

At the PharmAsia Summit – Shanghai, Elsevier and BayHelix will focus on new R&D and commercial models in a rapidly changing China. Given demographic changes and China's massive health care reforms, opportunities abound - but so do potential pitfalls. Tapping the unmet medical need present in China provides Pharma with one of its few growth bright spots. But achieving this growth will require new models and flexibility: smaller cities are now growing faster than Tier I cities presenting logistical challenges; off-patent medications are under severe pricing pressure, which could limit the widespread uptake of branded generics. While support for biopharma innovation is a major government goal, so is curbing healthcare inflation. How can Pharmas collaborate and thrive in this environment?

At the PharmAsia Summit, top industry leaders from China and the West will discuss new growth models for China via a series of case studies, panels and keynotes.

To kick-off the Summit, we will release our 2nd annual PharmAsia Summit Report, in collaboration with McKinsey & Co., providing an in-depth analysis of trends critical to biopharmaceutical development and commercialization in the China market. The agenda for the PharmAsia Summit is developed by an organizing committee chaired by Steve Yang, PhD, VP, Head of Asia and Emerging Markets iMed, AstraZeneca PLC.
