China currently spends $640 billion on healthcare every year, representing the most significant growth market in the world for the pharmaceutical industry. U.S. pharmaceutical companies, industry associations, and U.S. government agencies interested in learning about the Chinese approval process for foreign drugs and the postmarket monitoring process for pharmaceuticals will have the opportunity to connect with senior officials from the China National Medical Products Administration or NMPA (formally the Food & Drug Administration or CFDA) during the China NMPA Executive Leadership Training, hosted by the U.S. Trade & Development Agency (USTDA).
The Training will advance global best practices on approving imported pharmaceuticals through networking and information sharing.
