Dr. Nopporn Cheanklin – Managing Director, The Government Pharmaceutical Organization, Thailand
The Government Pharmaceutical Organization’s Managing Director, Dr. Nopporn Cheanklin, tells PharmaBoardroom about its plans to launch 20 new products, its seaarch for medicines whose patents expire in the next few years, and the prospects for exports to Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.
What ambitions for growth does the organization have both in Thailand and beyond its borders?
We are looking to invest more in research and development (R&D) and we have a new product line of 20 products we are also launching. We are expert producers and providers of generics, and consequently we are looking for medicines whose patents expire within the next few years. Moreover, we aim to continuously invest in order to produce new drugs that help with our budget, but also expecting to make future profits when we begin exporting to neighboring countries, such as Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.
