"The Saudi pharma market has grown by almost 5% to reach $10.74 billion, and hence is brimming with opportunity," he added.
The Saudi Indian Business Network (SIBN) President Abdullah Al Kassabi said that Saudi Arabia is in the heart of Islamic World. Leveraging Saudi Export Development Authority and EXIM bank program, Saudi Arabia can boost exports to MENA region and to the rest of the world, he said.
SFDA officials Wasem Alshalwi, Lujain Almmalouh and Raghad Alanaz gave an introduction to the regulations with respect to the pharmaceutical market in Saudi Arabia.
Saud Al Hwaimel, technical director of Sudair Pharma and Ex-SFDA chief of inspection, Abu Moosa, executive manager, Scientific Products Pharmaceuticals and Abdullah Jomaih, partner of Hetero Pharma, also spoke on the opportunities ahead for the two countries to explore.
