Commenting on this year’s CPhI & P-MEC India Expo, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, “The CPhI & P-MEC India Expo is an inherent part of our magnum opus, India Pharma Week (IPW), an array of marquee events celebrating the pharma industry. Always staying sensitive and true to trends, this year, the theme for the IPW is really to Reconnect and Rebuild, to achieve the next phase of growth for the Indian pharma domain. With a 15 per cent growth rate annually, the India Pharmaceutical market is a well-established sector with strong local manufacturing capabilities and an international export profile, and therefore, it is important to capture new market trends, innovate, adapt and seek newer opportunities to reach goals. We are thrilled to set ourselves back on track with this year’s expo, and while we are still fighting the global pandemic, we are delighted to see such a positive response from our international delegates. We look forward to a great response, and we promise all our guests a safe and productive experience at the India Pharma Week.”
