Lilly CEO Calls for Improved Dialogue in Germany Between Industry and the Government and Health Care System
Date:7/7/2011

BERLIN, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In an address to the Federation of German Industries Conference in Germany today, John C. Lechleiter, Ph.D., chairman, president and chief executive officer of Eli Lilly and Company, offered to help build a new level of trust between the biopharmaceutical industry and government health care regulators.  Lechleiter said collaboration can harness innovation to help meet growing health care demands within increasingly constrained budgets, create an environment where biopharmaceutical innovation can thrive, and achieve victories on behalf of the people who are counting on medical advances to live longer healthier lives.

Lechleiter, who in 2012 will serve as the chairman of PhRMA, the U.S.-based association of global pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies, noted that Germany is the third-largest market in the world for most of the industry, including Lilly.  

"Although Lilly is based in the U.S., we have deep roots here in Germany and enormous respect for this country's legacy as a pharmaceutical powerhouse," said Lechleiter.  "However, in no other place in the world has the environment for innovative pharmaceuticals changed more in the last 12 months than it has in Germany."  He noted that "recent health care reforms are jeopardizing the country's legacy of pharmaceutical innovation," but added:  "At the same time, I see Germany as a place where the pharmaceutical industry can achieve a breakthrough – a fresh start if you will – to develop more constructive and collaborative relationships."

Lechleiter said government and industry are on the same side in the fight against disease.  "We are collaborators, not competitors.  We need to work together in a spirit of openness and trust, and our industry bears responsibility for helping to build – or rebuild – that trust."

To open the dialogue, Lechleiter discussed recent health care
