Will "Made In China" Be Good For The Pharma Industry?
In the past medications from China were looked down upon and not trusted by many physicians around the world, including their own Chinese doctors. These medications are completely unregulated and have not been approved by the Chinese FDA. On appearance alone, many of the medications look identical; however, these medicines are dangerous and even fatal partly due to a lack of expertise, a shortage of quality manufacturing facilities, a small pool of talent to choose from, and a slow approval process by the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA).
Gradually they are raising the standards of their drug manufacturing processes. Some Chinese pharmaceutical companies are even partnering with American pharmaceutical companies to ensure better quality and a higher efficacy rate. These partnerships and the government’s efforts to incentivize privately owned businesses in China could revolutionize the pharmaceutical industry bringing costs down. Do you think this could have the potential to reduce drug prices in the U.S.? It does seem to be plausible.
