More than fourteen years ago, the Filipino pharmaceutical industry was represented by four industry organizations. Whenever one of the four campaigned for government reform, government would ask, “Do the other three organizations advocate the same position?”

Clearly, the Filipino pharmaceutical industry was disadvantaged in its agility to campaign for changes that would enable it to prosper in the then multinational-dominated pharmaceutical industry.

Through the resolve of the leaders of the four separate Filipino Pharmaceutical organizations to unite as one voice, the Philippine Chamber of the Pharmaceutical Industry was formed in March 2004 with a Vision of A Competitive Filipino Pharmaceutical Industry and a Mission to Enable the Filipino Pharmaceutical Industry to Lead.

Under the stewardship of our leaders and the critical support of its members, PCPI has grown into a 115 strong corporate member organization that has nurtured its place in the Filipino Healthcare industry as the “one and sole voice of the Filipino Pharmaceutical Industry”. As the sole voice, PCPI proactively engages relevant stakeholders to take action on its advocacies. We are grateful that government and the private sector seek our position on issues relevant to the Philippine Pharmaceutical Industry. We have been able to bring the Filipino’s interest into the paradigm of those who craft the policies that govern our industry. Confidently, PCPI can state that in the last decade, the Philippine pharmaceutical industry supplies the majority of the medicine needs of the Filipino people.

Greetings!

I wish to welcome you to our newly updated PCPI website.

As we work in creating a more inclusive industry, we are moving into developing a roadmap that will help guide us create a more self-sufficient local pharmaceutical industry.

We are also working towards enhancing both our local and regional networking so that we can create together value that will enhance the business of our members. Hence, this year we will be having our first PCPI business matching conference on July 24 at Eastwood Richmode Hotel.

We have initiated this keeping in mind the interest of our members so that they can further improve their businesses and update ourselves of different opportunities and technologies through partnership.

We continue to look forward for a more cohesive and united association driven by steadfast and proactive members.
