India is one of the world's fastest-growing pharma markets, and in order to grow strategically, it is constantly enhancing its manufacturing capabilities. To take advantage of and participate in this growth, Vizag is well-positioned, as the city has a large domestic market and its proximity to Southeast Asia makes it an ideal location for pharma companies looking to expand their reach in the region. It has a favorable location, a skilled workforce, and a supportive business environment.

As a result, Express Pharma will host the fourth edition of the Vizag Pharma Summit on May 19, 2023, at the Gateway Hotel, Visakhapatnam, India.

The Vizag Pharma Summit will feature sessions, presentations, and discussions on pressing issues and subjects, and networking opportunities galore.
