22-24 April 2015, Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center

Global standardization has been one of

the key trends in the Japanese
pharmaceutical industry over the past
decade. This has been shaped by the
revision of the Japanese pharmaceutical
affairs law, acquisitions of Japanese
companies by overseas players, and the
expansion of the generic drug market.
This trend will be further accelerated by
Japans joining the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S) last year.
It is becoming even more important for Japanese companies to build closer cooperation
with international partners who can provide them with competitive products,
technologies and services in order to compete in the international marketplace.

The growing importance of international cooperation within the industry has made the
CPhI Japan exhibition and its four parallel events - constituting the largest and most
international annual gathering of the pharmaceutical industry in Japan - an
indispensable opportunity for companies to meet new partners and forge new
relationships. Last year these five integrated pharma events attracted a
record-breaking17,000 visitors. This year there are 467 exhibiting companies from 27
countries and regions, and the exhibition will be the largest since its launch in 2002.

Insight into Open Innovation Strategies of Japanese
Pharmaceutical Companies seminar to be held in cooperation
with the Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association

A reduction in the amount of time needed to evaluate new drugs for official approval in
Japan has led to foreign pharmaceutical manufacturers, who at one stage were closing
their research bases in Japan, to now reestablish R&D centers and increase their
investments. Meanwhile, the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development
(AMED), a national research and development corporation, will be established in April
2015 to serve as a control tower for medical R&D activities, one of the main pillars of
Prime Minister Abes growth strategy. It is just one example of the trend in the Japanese
pharmaceutical industry is towards an improved environment for new drug

With the tide of the industry running in this new direction, on April 24, the third day of
CPhI Japan, a seminar entitled Insight into Open Innovation Strategies of Japanese
Pharmaceutical Companies will be held on the theme of Encouragement of Innovation
for Quality Improvement of and Contribution to Economic Development by Medical
Care. The topic is one of the main themes of the activities of the Japan Pharmaceutical
Manufacturers Association (JPMA). Mr. Makoto Suematsu, the first president of the
Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) will open the program
with an address. This will be followed by lectures by experts from Shionogi & Co., Ltd.,
Daiichi-Sankyo Co., Ltd., Astellas Pharma Inc., and Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.,
who will provide insight into what their companies are doing in the pursuit of open

Increased Use of Generic Drugs Leads to More API Suppliers
from China, India and Korea Exhibiting

With the development of new drugs becoming more active in Japan, one of the major
reasons for the increase in exhibit space at CPhI Japan must be the expansion of the
nations market for generic drugs.
A target of a 60% share for generic drugs, proposed in the April 2013 road map
announced by the Ministry of Public Health, Labour and Welfare, was attained earlier
than expected. This is but one example of the expanding trend of the generic drug
market. Meanwhile, the three major foreign groups of exhibitors including China, Korea
and India have significantly expanded their presence in this years exhibition.
Meanwhile from Europe, in addition to Spain exhibiting for the first time, Italy continues
to hold a steady position among active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) suppliers to
Japan and will expand the size of its pavilion this year. Foreign suppliers are clearly
expecting a new rise in API demand from Japan.

On the afternoon of April 22, the opening day of the exhibition, special presentations
under the title of The Future Vision of Generic Drugs - after 10 Years will be given by
Professor Masaki Muto, Representative Director of the Japan Society of Generic
Medicines, and Mr. Katsufumi Jo, Director of the Economic Affairs Division, Health
Policy Bureau, Ministry of Public Health, Labour and Welfare. They will discuss the
status of the generic drug market over the next ten years.

Initiative for Steady Supply of APIs to the Japanese Market

Along with the expansion of the market for generic pharmaceuticals, the role of foreign
suppliers of API is further increasing in importance. However, there are concerns that
the steady supply of API in the domestic market could become an issue. For example, if
GMP auditing resulted in a particular product being declared unacceptable, it would
result in the supply of the pertinent API being halted. Today, when such a situation
occurs, foreign API manufacturers are called upon to deepen their understanding of
Japanese GMP standards and the MF system. Japanese pharmaceutical
manufacturers, on the other hand, are urgently required to satisfy quality control
standards in Japan and secure access to price-competitive API suppliers.

To address these problems of API supply and quality control, last year an international
networking symposium entitled The Problem of Steady API Availability was launched
as a special event at CPhI Japan and attracted more than 600 participants. This years
edition will again bring together speakers from the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
Committee (APIC) of Europe, the Korea Pharmaceutical Traders Association (KPTA),
the China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Medicines & Health Products
(CCCMHPIE) and the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), an
independent administrative corporation, in Japan. The speakers are expected to put
forward proposals for problem solving regarding the steady supply of APIs from their
respective points of view.

Christopher Eve, President of UBM Japan, the organizer of the exhibition, comments:
Each year CPhI Japan has enjoyed the participation of many foreign governments and
trade associations, either as exhibitors or visitors. The stable supply of APIs a major
issue not only for generic drugs but also for new drugs and OTC drugs. I sincerely hope
that this seminar, organised by the Japan Pharmaceutical Traders Association, will
serve not only as an excellent opportunity for foreign API manufacturers to deepen their
understanding of GMP research and the MF system in Japan but also as a step toward
better mutual understanding between Japanese pharmaceutical manufacturers and the
world market.

Forefront of Pharmaceutical Industry

Over 150 Seminars to Discuss Process Chemistry,
Regenerative Medicine, Drug Formulation Technology, etc.

More than 150 seminar sessions will be held alongside CPhI Japan this year. The
seminar program, which attracts over 8,000 persons from the industry, is an important
component of CPhI Japan. In addition to the seminars mentioned above, there will be
the Process Chemistry Seminar held in cooperation with the Japanese Society for
Process Chemistry on the themes of greater efficiency of manufacturing processes and
quality control. It will cover the full range of products from low to high molecular weight.
The Biopharma Seminar will focus on regenerative medicine, which is expected to bring
about a significant expansion of the market. In addition, the InnoPack Japan
Conference will discuss drug formulation technology, packaging technology and
proposals on pharmaceutical packaging technology from scenes of medical care

A keynote address will be delivered by Mr. Kazuhiko Mori, Director of the Evaluation
and Licensing Division, Pharmaceutical and Food Safety Bureau, Ministry of Public
Health, Labour and Welfare, who will discuss how to get away from the blockbuster
model and work out a new strategy for new drug development. Another keynote
address will be given by Mr. Masafumi Nogimori, President of the Federation of
Pharmaceutical Associations of Japan (concurrently Chairman of Astellas Pharma Inc.),
who will introduce the role of the Japanese pharmaceutical industry in realizing a
healthy and long life society under the title of Toward Sustainable Growth of
Pharmaceutical Industry.

InnoPack Japan 2015 DDS and Packaging Innovation debuts

Drug delivery systems (DDS) are the focus of attention for maximizing the effectiveness
of pharmaceuticals. The global market for DDS is estimated to be worth 15 trillion and
growing steadily. Pharmatec Japan, an exhibition serving the field of DDS and primary
packaging until last year, has now been renamed as InnoPack Japan / DDS and
Packaging Innovation for 2015, and has increased in display space.

According to the Ministry of Public Health, Labour and Welfare, one out of every six
Japanese citizens is a current or potential diabetes patient. With the demand for
self-injection insulin rising, this years InnoPack Japan will showcase the latest devices
on the market, including glass syringes, prefilled syringes and needles, by such major
Japanese syringe makers as NIPRO, Terumo and Taisei Kako, together with foreign
exhibitors such as Becton, Dickinson and Company and West Pharm.

The InnoPack Japan conference will focus on user-friendliness, an aspect now

attracting note, in addition to drug formulation technology interlocked with new drug
development. There will be seminar sessions on the convenience of drug packaging
and self-injection from the patients point of view, such as What is the type of packaging
that a patient with trouble using his or her hands can open with little force? and How a
drug should be marked to prevent senior patients from taking it in a wrong way?

CPhI Women: New Networking Program
for Women Working in Drug Industry

This year a new networking program for women is being launched at CPhI Japan 2015,
called CPhI Women. According to UBM Japans President Christopher Eve,
Opportunities for women to have full and active careers in the Japanese
pharmaceutical industry are increasing, especially in the areas of drug regulatory affairs,
quality control and research. However women tend to have fewer opportunities than
their male colleagues for inter-company networking and information exchange. We
hope that CPhI Japan can offer a forum to facilitate networking by women in this
industry, and we hope that CPhI Japan Women will provide opportunities for business
communication directly linked to their daily jobs and for information exchange for better
career development.

This first edition of CPhI Women will feature a lecture entitled Designing Career
Options by Ms. Kuniko Shoji, Director and Senior Executive Officer, General Manager
of the Regulatory Affairs, Clinical Development Department, Terumo Corporation, who
will discuss some of the issues that women are likely to encounter in their work, and the
possible solutions. Following the lecture an informal networking exchange will be held.
Over 50 women from major Japanese pharmaceutical manufacturers will attend the

The India-Japan Pharmaceutical Summit at CPhI Japan 2015

To Cultivate a Two-Way Process of Business & Investment in
Pharmaceutical Industry between Japan and India.

India holds immense growth potential and the market is poised to reach sales of
US$50bn by 2020 (IMS DATA), up from US$21bn in 2014. On the other hand generic
build-up and contract manufacturing are two important growth modules for building
and sustaining the Japan pharmaceutical Industry. Japan is the second largest
pharmaceutical market but is still a relatively unexplored region for Indian companies
when compared to Europe and the USA. The summits objective is to cultivate
Two-Way Process of Business & Investment between the nations. The motto -
BRAND INDIA PHARMA and MAKE IN INDIA - will be unleashed as a growth strategy
and opportunity for the Japan Pharmaceutical and HealthCare sector.

The summit will invite representative persons from the Ministry of Commerce of the
Government of India, Pharmexcil, and Indian pharmaceutical and API companies as
speakers to talk about the current situation of Indias pharmaceutical industry and
discuss cooperation between Japan and India in developing further business
relationships and collaboration by inviting guest speakers from the pharmaceutical
industry in Japan.
