The lack of coherent supply chain regulation and trade practices remains the major challenge for pharma supply chain personnel in Asia. To make sure that your approved biologics drugs can be distributed to your local destination, you need to meet the right regulators and experts to optimise your supply chain practices. That’s why you should join us at BioPharma Asia. Here’s a few of the experts you will meet:

  1. No one has as much influence as Alan Bollard, Executive Director of Asia Pacific Economic Corporation (APEC) Secretariat when it comes to promoting trade, investment and sustainable economic growth in Asia Pacific. Working as the Executive Director of the APEC Secretariat, he is an experienced governor, having been responsible for various monetary policies & banking regulations in New Zealand and having worked in renowned institutions including the World Bank. If you wish to understand more about navigating Asia’s supply chain landscape, Alan is definitely somebody you should meet.
  2. Achieving harmonised supply chain practices across Asia will take time. And you need somebody to represent your perspective. Deborah Elms, Executive Director of Asian Trade Center is the key person behind the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which brings governments together to promote trade and the free movement of goods across borders. Hear her experiences of fostering the growth of regional trade in SEA on Day 1 of our conference to find out more on how trade issues influence your supply chain operations in Asia, and how you can make your voice heard.
  3. Despite the increased cost, air travel is often preferred, to minimise delivery time for high-value, short shelf life products. Hear from Rodrigo Reyes, Regional Manager Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security Asia Pacific of International Air Transport Association (IATA), who leads the promotion of IATA’s temperature control regulations and time and temperature-sensitive labels for the handling of cargo containing biologics products and find out what exciting innovations are in store to improve your supply chain
