HKAPI’s 50th Anniversary

Founded in 1968, the Hong Kong Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry (HKAPI) is comprised of 41 full members, including the world’s top 20 companies engaged in the research and development of pharmaceuticals. We are a firm believer in people-centered care. The mission of our Association is to drive the expedient access of innovative healthcare solutions for the people of Hong Kong and Macao with high ethical standards.

Since the 1990s, our Association has submitted several position papers on issues concerning the healthcare system. We work with regulatory authorities to expedite the drug registration process and enhance the regulatory framework by referring to international benchmarks. The Association was consulted on the amendment to the Pharmacy and Poisons Ordinance and the formulation of biosimilar guidelines.

Our Association supports drug education activities together with professional bodies including pharmacy and medical associations. We promote medical innovation by sponsoring many drug researches and clinical trials in Hong Kong. The Association would like to help create an ecosystem that enables Hong Kong to become the center of excellence in biomedical research and development.
