Cross-border partnerships are the focus of new rules just proposed by the China FDA that will improve upon commercial opportunities to get drug approvals in China. At the same time, the changes will make international collaboration and investment easier, including foreign-approved IND exemptions that speed up drug trials by two years or more and expedited regulatory processes for new drugs and IND/CTA approvals for certain indications to go to clinical trial, among other highlights. China continues to be the world’s fastest growing healthcare market with investment potential increasing each year. There is no better time to forge cross-border partnerships with China-based drug development companies.
