SHANGHAI, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- VacChina 2011 -- China's largest vaccine meeting -- welcomes world class biotechs and pharmas to discuss the opportunities of development of novel vaccine R&D and manufacturing technologies in China.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on March 1, 2011, that the national regulatory authority of China -- the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), along with affiliated institutions -- now meets WHO indicators for a functional vaccine regulatory system. This means that Chinese-made vaccines are now eligible to apply for WHO pre-qualification. On the same day as this WHO announcement, the China SFDA also adopted a new Good Manufacturing Practice code. The new code puts in place stricter requirements for vaccine production, in line with international standards, in order to ensure quality.
The announcement will motivate domestic manufacturers to strengthen vaccine development partnerships with international organizations at broader and more strategic levels. More government funding will also pour into companies working toward the goal of WHO pre-qualification. Furthermore, a new interest in vaccine technology will encourage Chinese scientists who are now working overseas to return to the country in order to leverage this opportunity.
Supported by BayHelix and hosted by Global Leaders Institute, world vaccine industry leaders will convene at VacChina 2011 on Nov 29 and 30 in Shanghai. The two-day executive summit will explore the major partnering opportunities in the vaccine industry in China. The goal of the summit is to bridge the China vaccine industry with the world class biotechnologies in terms of vaccine R&D and production.
