It is a matter of great pride for The Pakistan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers' Association (PPMA) to organize the 5th Pakistan Pharma Summit with the theme ‘Mastering Innate Strengths and Acquiring New Capabilities' in Islamabad after successfully organizing four pharma summits earlier. This year too, PPMA has come up with a compelling agenda, impressive line up of national and international speakers along with brining all key stakeholders of Pakistan's pharma industry under one roof.

Pakistan's pharma sector is a very vibrant and forward-looking industry. Today Pakistan has over 600 units including both local as well as multinationals present in the country. The local pharma industry meets significant requirement of local demand of finished medicine. Besides ensuring provision of quality medicine at affordable price in the country we are also exploring avenues to enhance Pakistan's export in pharma sector abroad.

Over the years, Pakistan Pharma Summit has established as the prime platform to showcase potential of local sectors to international investment community as well as a discussion forum about issues facing the industry and throws light on the road ahead for all stakeholders to realize its full potential.
