According to Jenny Leung, Brand Manager at CPHI Korea: "The feedback from our attendees and exhibitors confirms the expanding regional networks across East Asia. We're witnessing closer ties between Indian and Chinese ingredients providers, while bio companies, CDMOs, and innovators are using our platform to bolster their supply networks across the region. The future looks exceptionally promising, with Korea's pharma manufacturing poised for high-growth status in the global economy."
Provisional findings from the CPHI's Annual Pharma Survey further reinforce this positive outlook, indicating a growing interest in partnering with Korean companies among international audiences. Moreover, Korea's pharma industry is also set to receive an extra boost from increased government spending, propelling innovation in the biopharmaceutical sector and clinical trials.
