BEIJING and NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Biologic Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBPO, "China Biologic" or the "Company"), one of the leading plasma-based biopharmaceutical companies in the People's Republic of China, today announced two changes in its board of directors.

On October 6, 2011, Dr. Xiangmin Cui resigned from his positions as a director of China Biologic, a member of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Governance and Nominating Committee, and as Chairman of the Compensation Committee, effective immediately. Mr. Cui's resignation was due to personal reasons and not because of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies, or practices. Dr. Cui will serve as an independent consultant for the Company.

On October 6, 2011, the Company's board of directors appointed Mr. David (Xiaoying) Gao, age 61, as a director of the Company, a member of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, and the Governance and Nominating Committee, and as the Chairman of the Compensation Committee, effective immediately, to fill the vacancies resulting from Mr. Cui's resignation.

Mr. Chao Ming Zhao, Chief Executive Officer of China Biologic, said, "We understand Xiangmin's desire to reduce the breadth of his workload with our company. He has been an extraordinarily valuable contributor and industry expert on our board. He will continue to provide support to us as an advisor.

"We are pleased to welcome Mr. David Gao to our board. His extensive experience in serving as chairman, CEO, and director for various companies, plus his prior leadership roles in investment management, will serve our board well. We believe David will make wise contributions to the board's deliberations and decisions -- in industry leadership, strategy, management, and in creating value for shareholders."

Mr. David (Xiaoying) Gao has served as a senior integration advisor for Sanofi Group since February 2011. From February 2004 to February 2011, Mr. Gao served as the Chief Executive Officer and director of BMP Sunstone Corporation. From February 2002 through February 2004, Mr. Gao served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Beijing Med-Pharm Co. Ltd. (BMP China). Mr. Gao served as President and director of Abacus Investments Ltd, a private wealth management company, from August 2003 until June 2004, and as Chief Executive Officer of Abacus from July 2003 to June 2004.

From 1989 to 2002, Mr. Gao held various executive positions at Motorola, Inc., a publicly traded company specializing in wireless, broadband, and automotive communications technologies and embedded electronic products, including Vice President and Director, Integrated Electronic System Sector, Asia-Pacific operation, from 1998 to 2002; Member, Motorola Asia Pacific Management Board, Management Board of Motorola Japan Ltd., from 2000 to 2002; and Motorola China Management Board from 1996 to 2002.
