The exclusive, closed-door Round Table was a congregation of India's most influential CEOs, Presidents & Founders from leading pharmaceutical companies, and Policy Makers & Senior Representatives from Pharmaceutical Associations who engaged with one another on the vital issue of Make in India - Ensuring India's Pharma Supremacy with a special focus on affordable healthcare in the urban and rural areas in India.
Speaking on the occasion of the CEO Round Table, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India, said, "Renowned as the pharmacy hub of the world, the Indian pharma economy has been lauded for its rapid growth, with a CAGR of 17.6%. As we congregated for this elite knowledge sharing session, we confronted the Indian pharma industry at a very crucial juncture in its growth trajectory. While India ranks amongst the top four pharmaceutical markets in terms of volume of produced drugs, certain challenges continue to surround its pharma industry. India faces issues including a time-consuming approval process, dependence on China for cheaper API sources, sub-optimal infrastructure, lack of funding avenues, and a shortage of highly skilled talent, among others."
"Meanwhile, the US - the largest exporter of Indian generics -- has started looking inwards at its own domestic market. Hence the subject of Ensuring India's Pharma Supremacy- Make in India becomes critical. The reasons and solutions for this gap were discussed by the noted master strategists who drive business in the pharma sector. The CEO Round Table is an extremely proactive initiative with the White Paper Report that will be presented to relevant policy makers," he further added.
