Volume 20, Issue 6

To assure continued industry growth, Chinese authorities recognize the importance of enhancing their country's IP protection systems for both domestic and foreign biologics. The fact that Chinese companies are using the court systems and lawsuits to seek remedies indicates a major change in the Chinese pharmaceuticals business environment. China's large domestic market potential and its solid competence in producing biogenerics are key factors driving its future direction.
