Pfizer And Hisun Announce Launch Of Hisun-Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd.

Stocks in this article: PFE

It is one of the first joint ventures between a multinational pharmaceutical company and a local leading pharmaceutical company in branded generic medicines in China, and is also one of the largest pharmaceutical joint venture projects in Zhejiang province.

Bai Hua, Chairman and President of Hisun, expressed that establishing this joint venture with a leading global pharmaceutical company is an important step towards achieving Hisun’s long-term vision of “becoming a widely respected international pharmaceutical company” by “persisting in pharmaceutical innovation for the benefit of human beings.” The partnership also paves the way for Hisun to transition from being an active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) manufacturer to an established branded generics company. “The joint venture will provide our patients with high-quality and low-cost branded generic medicines through our internationally compatible management systems and R&D and production technology. This will help us better contribute to the development of the Chinese pharmaceutical industry, advance the drug innovation and manufacturing capabilities of Zhejiang province and China, and lay a solid foundation for Chinese pharmaceutical companies to enter the international market,” he said.

“Providing high-quality, accessible and affordable health care to people over a vast area and from broad socioeconomic levels has become a primary objective of Chinese healthcare reforms, which is aligned with Pfizer’s mission to provide high-quality and affordable medicines to our patients,” said Xiaobing Wu, Country Manager of Pfizer China. “The joint venture demonstrates Pfizer’s commitment to China’s ongoing healthcare reforms and is an important milestone for Pfizer’s efforts to broaden the reach of its world-class healthcare solutions in China. We are glad to be partnering with Hisun in this venture to address the needs of our patients.”

Hisun and Pfizer first signed the Memorandum of Understanding to establish the joint venture during the Zhejiang Provincial Government Delegation’s visit to the U.S. in June 2011. In February 2012, during the visit of Mr. Xi Jinping, Vice President of China, to the U.S., the two companies signed the Framework Agreement at the Sino-US Economic & Trade Cooperation Forum held in Los Angeles. Mr. Xi and John Bryson, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, in addition to other senior officials from China and the U.S., attended the signing ceremony.
