AstraZeneca Moves Drug Production to China Leaving the UK
Posted Nov 28 2009 10:01pm
Not too long ago I posted about Astra Zeneca dismissing all their pharmaceutical representatives in the US. In as mentioned in the article here Pfizer and is also closing plants in the US. At some point in time I wonder if we will have a need for manufacturing if they will have any manufacturing left in the United States were the United Kingdom. BD
The move is part of a trend: Drug companies with massive Western operations are shutting them down and moving them to China. The unanswered question is, How will the FDA monitor production of drugs destined for the U.S. if all the factories are in China?
