“The first goal entails the access of medicines that we wish to guarantee for all Indonesians. In this regard, the universal healthcare system (JKN) has been as efficient a partner as we could have hoped for.

Maura Linda Sitanggang, Ministry of Health

“[The Halal Law] could pose a real menace to the life sciences sector as pharmaceutical companies could stop producing drugs in Indonesia or even refrain from bringing them to market for fear of sanction for non-compliance.”

Parulian Simanjuntak, IPMG

“We have disrupted the way procurement is done in Indonesia through implementing technology in orded to minimize inefficiencies within the tendering system such as transparency and lead times.”

Agus Prabawo, LKPP

“The public sector outpacing the private in terms of growth is tremendous news when you consider Indonesia’s mammoth untapped market”

Chris Wren, British Chamber of Commerce

“We believe that Indonesia’s large and diverse population offers a great clinical research opportunity.”
