Conference Day Two


Market Search and the Emerging Markets

With increasing competition from generics, there is huge pressure on the industry to be able to manufacture at cheaper costs to maintain market dominance. But, how do you do this?

One solution is to look at manufacturing in the emerging markets. Not only can this help with scaibility and offer novel technologies, but also it can reduce your supply chain to certain regions around the globe. However, this is not a simple solution. Identifying partners with specific technologies is a challenge and technical support is needed to develop a robust manufacturing process. Not to mention issues with GMP compliance, regulations, and the most important factor – QUALITY.

Join this workshop to determine the best way to approach CMOs in the emerging markets, and understand how you can build this into your fundamental strategy for your cost improvement projects!
