1st Pharma Export Summit & Awards 2021
Message from Chairman, PPMA
In the past year, the value of the pharmaceutical sector of Pakistan was estimated to be around $3.2 billion, doubling from $1.64 billion in 2011. It is likely to hit $ 5 billion in next few years. In the 1st half of FY 2020-21, pharmaceutical exports have recorded an increase by 24%. The sector's exports in 2019 stood at $218 million, up from $44.4 million in 2003. Founded in 1961, the PPMA is recognized by the Government of Pakistan as the only representative Pharma body in the country, which has about 700 plus members comprising both national and multinational companies. Pakistan's Pharma industry is very vibrant and dynamic, currently fulfilling more than 95% of the domestic pharmaceutical requirements. PPMA strives to ensure availability of quality medicines to all at reasonable price and to enhance exports of the country by accessing more value added markets of Europe and USA and the rising emerging markets of Africa. Through exports and industrial progress, the Pharma industry intends to work constructively with the government and regulatory agencies to ensure that our policy environment allows us to compete on the world stage. We invite our colleagues to attend the prestigious ceremony of 1st PESA and share the knowledge and celebrate the success of the industry as in the current climate it's more important than ever to recognize what has been achieved.
I look forward to welcoming you all.
