Record Attendance Expected at CPhI    

Continued double digit growth in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry is reflected in record visitor pre-registration levels and a sell-out of exhibition space at this year's UBM International Media China events - CPhI, ICSE, P-MEC and BioPh - which will run from June 2-4 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. It is expected to attract over 20 000 visitors, including 7 000 from outside China.
   Projected to be the third largest pharma market globally by 2011 and second by 2020, China is both a large producer and consumer of medicines, making it an attractive market in terms of both sourcing and sales. Additional stimuli, such as changes to local GMP standards, which are being revised in 2010 to be more in line with international ones, are also making China increasingly appealing for Western visitors to the events, looking to access the many outsourcing and production efficiency partnering opportunities available in China.
