Keynote Panel
Western pharma's strategic role in China

Wednesday, 09:30–10:30
Shanghai Ballroom 3

Cross-border partnering and corporate investment activity are exploding in China, with many of the major pharma leading the way. But regulatory and compliance hurdles remain a challenge to multinational companies bringing their products to China. This dynamic environment is rapidly changing the role of Western pharma in China. On this keynote panel, senior executives from global pharma will examine how the rapidly changing landscape in China is driving their companies to adapt new research and development models to address the local market needs as well as the need for novel NMEs globally.

Biologics: China's new wave of innovation

Wednesday, 11:00–12:00
Pudong Ballroom 4

China has identified biologics innovation as a major driver for its biopharmaceutical industry and is actively promoting and funding the development of novel biologics as well as biosimilars. In a recent study, ChinaBio® identified nearly 100 antibody companies in China developing monoclonal antibodies, antibody drug conjugates and other related technologies, and there are many other programs underway at China's top universities and institutes. But how much of this is truly innovative, and where will China be in 5–10 years as it continues to focus on innovation? Founders and senior executives from four of China's most innovative biologics companies will discuss where biologics innovation stands now and how it is evolving in the future.

Biosimilars: Four questions for 2015

Wednesday, 13:30–14:30
Pudong Ballroom 4

Innovative biologics and biosimilars are expected to lead the next wave of growth in the global pharmaceutical market, with biosimilars attracting especially significant R&D investment. At this session, Ropes & Gray attorneys will examine CFDA's recently published biosimilars guidance, compare it to EMEA and U.S. FDA guidelines, and highlight several key questions for consideration in 2015. Particular attention will be paid to whether China seems poised to follow the experience of Europe, which dominates the global biosimilars market due in large part to well-defined regulatory guidelines, or that of the United States, where a stringent regulatory environment has hampered commercialization of biosimilars.

Panel Discussion
In- and out-licensing in China: A guide to success

Wednesday, 14:30–15:30
Pudong Ballroom 4

Chinese in- and out-licensing deals are jumping to new record levels every year. For small and medium-sized companies from the West, in-licensing assets to the Chinese market creates a great opportunity to enter this exciting market. Despite the lack of financial resources, bandwidth and regulatory expertise required for success in China, Western companies successfully navigate the process with the right partner.

For Chinese companies, the option to out-license their assets will create significant leverage with the Western life science industry and provides access to completely new networks. And yet despite all the upside and the excitement, many of the transactions never come to fruition or fail early on. This panel will discuss the dos and don'ts in the two-way licensing field and provide guidance to successful partnering.

Why VCs are pumping big money into China healthcare and life science

Wednesday, 16:00–17:00
Pudong Ballroom 4

2014 was a record year in VC investment in China with nearly USD 1.7 billion flowing into life science companies. Add to that, USD 1.4 billion in corporate investment, a total of USD 3.1 billion of cash flowed into early and mid-stage life science companies in China. What do VCs see in China that is attracting record amounts of capital, and why are they more active here than in traditional Western markets?

The top seven challenges in structuring China-related transactions

Thursday, 11:00–12:00
Pudong Ballroom 4

China is full of contradictions, and so is any transaction involving China. Whether you look at China as a source of capital or as a potential market, whether you are a Chinese company reaching out globally or an international company negotiating with a Chinese counterpart, the China factor looms large in your strategic planning and implementation activities. In this session, experts with significant cross-border transaction experience will share the top seven challenges they have faced in China and how these were resolved, and lead the discussion to help attendees learn how to analyze and resolve similar transactions.
