By 2020, according to Frost & Sullivan, healthcare expenditure in the APAC will increase 151 percent over 2010 figure, to $2927 billion at a compound annual growth rate of 9.2 percent.

Factors such as increasing population, per capita income, prevalence of lifestyle diseases due to rapid urbanization, apart from cost factors, are aiding growth. However, the opportunities come with a set of challenges, some of which are unique to the region. The APAC is characterized by diverse therapeutic segments, different and complex regulatory laws and a fragmented market, and the global economic crisis has added a new layer of complexity to the already challenging environment.

BioSpectrum identifies 10 challenges that are common to the region and are likely to be hurdles in the industry’s progress. Cultural Diversity Critical Mass Policy Issues Raising Capital Human Resouces Regulatory Issues Currency Fluctuation Partnering Price Sensitivity Credible “midsize” CROs.

Regulatory challenges in APAC include a major challenge in India of having an effective mechanism for dealing with the government, given its active responsibility in taking funding decisions, regulating healthcare services, and deciding policy issues, including the most crucial ones regarding intellectual property rights. “In China, companies need to pass many hurdles such as complicated regulatory framework and a lengthy process for getting a product registered and then getting it added to the national reimbursement list,” he adds. In Australia, he says, the challenge for pharmaceutical companies “is the upcoming patent expiration for drugs developed in the 1980s and replicating those profit streams”.

Parties execute the NDA to protect confidential and proprietary information shared by (and between) each party. In most cases, NDAs act as first step towards subsequent business agreements and contracts, which include additional provisions to cover complexities of business transactions between the parties.

While drafting a confidentiality (non-disclosure) agreement, it is crucial to ensure interests of both the parties is adequately secured by including the required provisions in a well-defined manner and excluding provisions that are not required. Read more here.
