Advance in Biopharmaceutical Technology in China

A Society for Industrial Microbiology and BioPlan Associates co-publication

Every organization has a China strategy, though for many of us it is simply “ignore it.” A great opportunity exists in working with China and implementing an effective company strategy.  However, winning in Asia in the new millennium will require fundamental changes in partnerships between western and Asian companies.  Every company faces the question “What should our China strategy be?” But to neglect China is to forego opportunities to gain efficiency in most of the things we are trying to do.  China provides opportunities that allow us to do different things and not just do things differently. 

This volume provides an overview of the biopharmaceutical industry,  It provides a ready reference for all aspects of the world of biopharmaceuticals in China, including general understanding, detailed technical and business descriptions, and detailed information on all types of organizations involved in biopharmaceuticals in China, whether they be companies (state owned or privately owned), universities, or government institutions.
