Dozens of Chinese pharmaceutical companies have participated in Pharmaconex 2023, an ongoing international pharma exhibition held in Egypt's capital Cairo, in order to explore business opportunities in Egypt and the rest of Africa and the Middle East.
The three-day exhibition, which kicked off on Sunday, has gathered pharmaceutical companies from countries including Egypt, China, India, the United States, Italy, France, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, according to the organizer of the event.
Jiang Min, a senior sales manager from Luohe Chief Pharmaceutical, a producer and seller of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) based in central China's Henan province, said her company seeks to promote its products in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East region and hopes to build ties with Egyptian counterparts through the expo, which is sponsored by Egypt's Ministry of Trade and Industry.
"The Egyptian market is new to us and this is the first time to take part in the Pharmaconex expo in Cairo, so we hope it will be a chance to meet prospective customers and partners," said Jiang.
"We don't just want to make business deals here, we also want to make good friends in the Egyptian market," she added.
