NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AHM today announced that it has begun engaging with pharmaceutical companies in China as part of a broader initiative to support the growing compliance needs in the Asia-Pacific region.
China has a complex regime of laws relating to compliance. One recent area of prominence relates to anti-corruption requirements, which are largely embodied in the Anti-Unfair Competition Law and in criminal statutes. The latter puts particular focus on bribery in the public sector, which in China includes many large government-owned enterprises. Under the current Chinese administration, there have been more anti-corruption prosecutions than in the past, meaning those undertaking business in China need to be especially cognizant of compliance concerns, whether in their home country or the People's Republic.
"Pharmaceutical companies in China have identified the critical need for compliant meetings and event management solutions due to growing regulatory focus and active enforcement measures," said Nigel Whitehead, CEO of AHM. "We believe that our experience in the US market is resulting in the engagement by our clients to cover an increasing number of international markets such as China."
AHM will be hosting its first Asia-Pac conference at the Swissotel Grand Shanghai on April 28, 2016 in Shanghai, China. The conference will focus on the compliance challenges faced by pharmaceutical companies and highlight solutions from AHM and its partners. AHM intends to have its first client solution within the Asia-Pacific region live by the end of 2016.
