Our colleague Roman Stoyanov represented Penkov Markov & Partners to the Bulgaria-China business forum on ‘Trade and Cooperation in Pharmaceutical Products and Medical Devices’, organized by the Bulgarian Chamber for Commerce and Industry (BCCI), the China Medicines and Medical Products Import and Export Chamber and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Bulgaria.

The Chinese delegation, headed by representatives of the Ministry of Trade of China and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, delivered some informative presentations on the development of the pharma industry, the production of food additives, medical devices and health products. The Chinese participants presented their experience and accomplishments and told business success stories about their joint ventures with multinational patented and generic pharmaceuticals and medical devices manufacturers.

Representatives of 14 Chinese manufacturers, including some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in that country, were in attendance, as were some of the captains of the Bulgarian (mostly generic) pharmaceuticals industry, officials from the Ministry of Health and the Bulgarian Drug Agency.

The forum ended in a networking session during which participants from the business communities of China and Bulgaria exchanged valuable experience.
