  • (1888PressRelease) December 03, 2015 - Regulatory affairs and legal issues are still the key challenge for parallel distribution, as reflected from recent cases.

    In the exclusive interview, Arty Rajenra said: "From a legal perspective, there has been a new case which will be of interest to the audience. Exchange rate and currency fluctuations are the drivers behind PT- with sterling pounds being so strong against the euro and dollar, the UK has become an attractive territory for parallel importers. We have certainly been advising clients more frequently on parallel import issues and the legal tools available to assist them". For full interview download, please visit the events website.

    The post-conference workshop will provide an interactive environment with practical examples for delegates to learn about scenario planning as well as in-depth snapshot of regional pharmaceutical markets.

    Attendees will gain invaluable takeaways from this workshop on critical regulatory landscape and legislations that can impact on their business planning and operations. The workshop will also address mitigation of legal risks and when to act, in order to ensure business continuity and integrity on a pan-European landscape.
