Paving the Way for Indian Pharmaceuticals in the Philippines

Font Size

Indian pharmaceutical companies have since identified the Philippines as an increasingly
potential market for affordable, quality medicines. A 23-company delegation led by the
Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India (PHARMEXCIL) is putting up a mini-expo and
exclusive business matching session for local distributor and partner companies on January 18,

PHARMEXCIL is the apex industry association set up under the Government of India for the
promotion and export of Indian pharmaceutical products. They are returning for the fifth time
to Manila to meet and connect with potential business partners.

Further to President Duterte’s trip to India last January 2018, in line with the ASEAN
Commemorative Summit, a key highlight of the trip was the emphasized interest on bringing
Indian pharmaceuticals to the Philippines through the discussions of a potential medicine trade
deal and inviting Indian pharma companies to manufacture and produce in the Philippines for
easier access to quality drugs for the Filipino people.

India has been acknowledged as the “Pharmacy of the World”, being the largest manufacturer
of generics in the world. Pharmaceutical products from India are also known to be affordable
with high efficacy rates.

The Philippines-India Business Council, together with PHARMEXCIL India, and with the support
of the Embassy of India, Manila, Department of Trade and Industry, Philippines, and the
Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, have organized the “India Biz Connect: Pharma
Edition” on January 18, 2019, from 01:00-05PM at the New World Hotel, Makati City. This event
provides the platform for local Filipino companies to have exclusive business matching and one-
on-one meetings with the 23-company delegation from India.
