Dhaka: India met 8.2 percent of Bangladesh’s import of pharma machinery as of 2020 and there lies a huge untapped market for India which is yet to be explored, according to EEPC India Chairman Mahesh Desai.

India needs to work more and intensify its trading agreement with Bangladesh, Desai said as Asia Pharma 2022 kicked off today in Dhaka.

Desai noted that this is an excellent opportunity to meet the decision-makers, top management, regulatory authorities, consultants, and pharma equipment industry, professionals.

Nazmul Hassan, Member of Parliament (MP), Bangladesh was the Chief Guest at the inaugural ceremony of Asia Pharma 2022. Major General Mohammad Yousuf, Director General, Directorate General of Drug Administration was present as a special guest on the occasion.
