Pharmaceutical imports stable in 2015

The proportion of medicines that Burma imports is not set to change in 2015, according to state media. Around 85 percent of “Western” pharmaceuticals come from neighbours, with half coming from India. Other imports come from China and Thailand. Interest in health-sector and pharmaceutical investment is growing, state media said, and the second trade show from the Myanmar Pharmaceutical and Medical Equipment Entrepreneurs Association is scheduled for 5-7 February.
