Thank you for visiting New York Pharma Forum online.
The New York Pharma Forum is a non-profit organization, founded in 1990. Our member companies come together to examine and discuss issues that impact the global pharmaceutical industry, with a focus on Japan. This goal is carried out through monthly programs bringing together opinion leaders, government officials, and industry peers to discuss cutting edge issues in the business, policy, and technology arenas.
The international pharmaceutical and biotech industries are coping with ever-rising costs for research and development, coupled with increasing governmental and social pressures to keep prices down. These economic issues are driving industry consolidation around the world – even in Japan, where mergers and acquisitions do not have a long tradition in business life.
