He continued: "This year we will launch CPhI in Istanbul and we want to continue focusing on leading the development of the brand within markets where there are significant opportunities for growth in exports, and/or burgeoning domestic markets with modernising healthcare reimbursement models. This will ensure CPhI helps international pharma executives and manufacturers to develop the new pharma economies globally."
