Pre-market entry analysis
Clinical trial management
Pre-registration and registration of pharmaceuticals for sale in the People's Republic of China
Pharmaceutical marketing to physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers
Pharmaceutical distribution to hospitals
In December 2004, Beijing Med-Pharm signed an agreement to purchase Beijing Wanwei Pharmaceutical Corporation, Ltd., a pharmaceutical distributor covering the bulk of Beijing's hospitals.
This was a historic event, the first-ever purchase of a Chinese pharmaceutical distribution company by a foreign entity, permitted only after a December 2004 change in Chinese law.
By adding this distributor to their already-existing sales and marketing services, Beijing Med-Pharm hopes to offer an unparalleled opportunity to reach China, the world's fastest-growing market. And their veteran pharmaceutical management staff makes it simple for you to do so.
