-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, 

Don't miss the opportunity to join Africa's pharmaceutical industry leaders and

pharmaceutical prospects during the first ever "Africa Pharmaceutical Summit" 
to be held from 23-24 September 2013 in Hammamet, Tunisia.

With a booming demand on drugs and medicine expected to raise up to US $40 
billion as early as 2020, Africa's pharmaceutical prospects are attracting a 
lot of interest from private investors around the world. A number of Africans 
with significant disposable income and spending power, strong demographic 
dynamics, including fast urbanization, steady economic growth in most parts of 
the continent, improved infrastructure in both rural and urban areas are the 
drivers of Africa's pharmaceutical boom. The pharmaceuticals industry 
development is also very high on the agenda of African countries, which are 
developing continental and regional strategies on the local production of drugs.
 
A platform between the public and private sectors, the 1st Africa 
Pharmaceutical Summit will address a wide range of issues such as regulatory 
frameworks and protection of the poor against exorbitant cost of drugs, greater 
policy coherence between industrial policy and public health, as well as job 
creation prospects. By joining the Africa Pharmaceutical Summit, business 
leaders will get a unique opportunity to dialogue with policy-makers on those 
developments in order to understand better how to evolve their operating 
strategy.
 
Participants to the Africa Pharmaceutical Summit will gain knowledge and 
insights from Africa's leading pharmaceutical experts, organisations and 
government officials. High level policy-makers, Ministers of Health, Industry & 
Trade and Finance, CEOs, experts from pharmaceuticals manufacturers, 
universities, institutions and organizations will debate the future of Africa's 
pharmaceuticals industry.
 
Come join the discussions about the development of the pharmaceutical industry 
on the continent, harnessing the potential of Africa's emerging markets, 
business linkages and financing. The Africa Pharmaceutical Summit will be the 
first attempt in Africa to gather all stakeholders in order to identify the 
continent's strengths and weaknesses and the required actions to foster 
pharmaceutical sector development.
