Successful China Visits for Finnish Pharmaceutical Companies.
Arranged by China Business Solutions, an eight-person Finnish pharmaceutical delegation visited Beijing and Shanghai in April 2009. The visit was organised by Tekes (the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation) as a part of the internationalisation activities of Tekes’s Pharma programme.
China Business Solutions was commissioned to identify the suitable Chinese counterparts for Finnish delegates to meet, as well as to deliver a seminar bringing leading Chinese contract research firms, clinical trials companies, research institutes, and VC together to exchange ideas and network with the Finnish companies. The delegates also enjoyed a half day intensive learning on doing business in China and all cultural sensitivities, delivered by China Business Solutions.
The participants of the China visit gained a comprehensive picture of the pharmaceutical industry, and were pleased with the outcome of the arranged companies meetings. The visit ended with the well organised China 2009 Pharmaceutical R&D Summit conference with Chinese pharmaceutical R&D companies and service providers from all over the country.
