NIPRO Pharma Vietnam Co., Ltd.
Nipro Pharma selected Hai Phong Vietnam, as the location for its first overseas production. This was because diligent people and reliable infrastructure would be available in Vietnam to achieve Japanese quality, and because the geopolitical conditions of Vietnam would guarantee stable supply systems. Thanks to the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the location is also suitable for developing markets in surrounding countries in Asia.
Stable supply of high-quality pharmaceutical products
A reliable workforce is indispensable to achieve Japanese quality. Vietnamese people are diligent and are friendly to the Japanese. Economic exchange between Japan and Vietnam is also vibrant, and local underlying industries are expected to develop with support from Japanese companies, which will lead to further quality enhancement and cost reduction in Vietnam.
Toward economic integration of ASEAN countries, the development of surrounding markets is also expected.
Among developing countries, dramatic economic growth is expected in Vietnam. Due to the launch of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) at the end of 2015, this place is expected to function as an ideal base for developing markets not only in Vietnam but also in other rapidly growing markets of surrounding countries in Asia.
