Within the pharmaceutical industry, companies must not only respond to changes in the domestic environment such as the rapid decline in the number of children, graying of society, and reform in the medical system, but also must respond to globalization. Based on the needs of particular countries and regions, Kokando is undertaking various activities including exporting its own products and acting as an OEM for overseas products. In addition, tie-ups are being created with promising venture companies and corporations with innovative production technologies overseas, and efforts are being made to develop better products.
In particular, quality medicines produced in Japan are well received as a “brand” in Asia, which will become a large market for pharmaceutical products. As a Japanese company, Kokando considers rapidly establishing its brand an urgent task and has launched various efforts to achieve this.
In addition to forming a new Global Business Department and gathering information from overseas, Kokando is searching for new business opportunities throughout the world in order to strength its overseas expansion.
