In the special session, Mr. Ken Chen, Vice President of Clinical Service Center, provided in-depth insights into the current status and prospects of overseas asset transactions for Chinese pharmaceutical companies. He discussed how, in the face of a capital winter, innovative biopharmaceutical companies are preparing to go global with varying strategies. These include joint ventures, leveraging existing platforms, and independent ventures:

Joint Ventures:The advantage is reducing local policy barriers and accelerating product entry. The disadvantage lies in managing cross-cultural communication and coordination issues.

Leveraging Existing Platforms:This approach is flexible and efficient, with lower investment requirements for Chinese pharmaceutical companies and relatively lower entry barriers compared to mainstream innovative drug global expansion models. However, the downside is the loss of future R&D and commercialization rights in the overseas market, limiting the company's potential gains.

Independent Ventures:This strategy allows for greater autonomy in R&D, commercialization, and supply chain choices, benefiting Chinese pharmaceutical companies in strengthening their global presence in the innovative drug sector. However, it requires the company to face global competition, necessitating higher innovation, R&D capabilities, strategic management, and cross-border coordination skills. Additionally, it involves more challenging communications with local government departments and demands substantial financial support from the company.


The most successful global expansion strategy among Asian enterprises is exemplified by Takeda. With a history of nearly 80 years of international ventures, Takeda has achieved global presence through various models, including joint ventures with Abbott to establish laboratories, corporate acquisitions, and in-licensing products. Over the span of a century, Takeda has become one of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Every company aspiring to go global should study Takeda's journey in-depth.

China's pharmaceutical industry is rapidly advancing, particularly achieving significant milestones in the field of innovative drugs. As the global pharmaceutical market continues to expand, Chinese innovative drugs are gradually moving towards international markets, creating a strong wave of internationalization. This trend not only constitutes a vital component of Chinese pharmaceutical companies' globalization strategies but also signifies a significant enhancement in the international competitiveness of China's pharmaceutical industry.
