FICCI Business Digest - - Internacional Initiatives -

The Fed­er­a­tion of In­dian Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try (FICCI) and the Min­istry of Com­merce, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia, or­ga­nized the In­dia Pav­il­ion at the In­ter­na­tional Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Expo (INTERPHEX) in New York from April 26-28, 2016, un­der the Mar­ket Ac­cess Ini­tia­tive Scheme of the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia. Over 50 com­pa­nies from In­dia in the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sec­tor, rang­ing from equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing to pack­ag­ing par­tic­i­pated in the ex­hi­bi­tion.

The In­dia Pav­il­ion was in­au­gu­rated in the pres­ence of Riva Gan­guly Das, Con­sul Gen­eral of In­dia, New York. This was the first time that In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ers of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ma­chin­ery and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal pack­ag­ing par­tic­i­pated in a spe­cial­ized Fair of this mag­ni­tude in New York un­der the In­dia Ban­ner.

INTERPHEX 2016, the pre­mier event ded­i­cated to phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and biotech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion, tech­nol­ogy and knowl­edge, has emerged as a cru­cial plat­form for show­cas­ing the lat­est in­no­va­tion and tech­nolo­gies through­out all phases of the prod­uct life­cy­cle, in­clud­ing pharma man­u­fac­tur­ing and pro­cess­ing tech­nol­ogy, bio­pro­cess phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal systems and ser­vices. 'In­dia Pav­il­ion' ini­tia­tive at INTERPHEX 2016 re­in­states the po­ten­tial of the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try in In­dia which is at­tract­ing global at­ten­tion and also high­lights the im­por­tance of 'Make in In­dia' pro­gramme which is gain­ing recog­ni­tion in In­dia as well as abroad.

There was sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­est and foot­falls in the In­dia Pav­il­ion as well as at the other stalls of the In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ers.

In­dian ex­hibitors re­ceived en­cour­ag­ing re­sponse from vis­i­tors at the B2B meet­ings and have been able to get good leads and en­quiries, some of which may turn into busi­ness deals in fu­ture. The par­tic­i­pa­tion of American As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dian Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Sci­en­tists as a part­ner or­ga­ni­za­tion has been an added ad­van­tage as they are based in New Jersey and can pro­vide the vi­tal links that an In­dian com­pany would need to con­nect with the lo­cal mar­ket. Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing is a high po­ten­tial sec­tor which can re­sult in both in­vest­ments and in­creased trade with the United States.
