Wednesday,4th December 2013, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India : The state of the indian pharmaceutical & healthcare industry is definitely not in good shape as the nation has witnessed series of policy paralysis & the stand-off between the industry & the government. The latest blow to this is in in FDI in Pharma where the government has decided to continue with the existing policy on foreign direct investment in the pharmaceutical sector and not implement the revised policy proposed by the industry ministry. However, an additional condition has been imposed that in all cases of FDI in Brownfield pharma projects, there will be no non-compete clause in any of the inter se agreements. There is also a deep concern with regard to the image of the pharma industry in india due to the severe attack from the regulatory bodies such as US FDA. Pricing continues to be the challenging factor as majority of essential drugs are controlled by the pricing mechanism of the government. Healthcare insurance again is a concept in womb in india. The state of medical profession in india still needs to be improved given the huge requirements of doctors. It seems political priorities have overtaken Indian growth story.

Keeping in view the seriousness of the topic where the government has repeatedly failed to give a leadership direction & listen to the Indian drug makers coupled with the lack of a healthy dialogue between the doctors & the pharma companies, Pharmaleaders ( ), a division of Network 7 Media Group, is organizing its 6th Annual Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit & Business Leadership Awards 2013 ( ) at hotel hilton mumbai international airport on Friday 27th December 2013 in india under the theme Incredible Pharmaleaders 2013, Billion Dreams – Pushing India’s Growth Agenda.
