France, with an option to invest in Mexico

The Federal commissioner for Protection against Health Risks, Julio Sanchez y Tepoz, had a meeting with the French ambassador to Mexico, Maryse Bossiere, and a group of entrepreneurs of the pharmaceutical sector from that European Country, with the objective of strengthening ties for collaboration in the health sector. Mr. Sanchez y Tepoz highlighted the opportunities Mexico offers for the development of clinical research, while commenting on the recent agreement signed between COFEPRIS, IMSS, Mexico’s Tax Administration System and the National Chamber of the Industry Pharmaceutical on this regard, which will set the bases to make good use of the capital the health sector has, in order to increase the clinical research investment, which currently totals US$13 million annually and has great growth potential.
