PAREXEL - Josef von Rickenbach speaks about the importance of the Japanese pharmaceutical market
Japan's pharmaceutical market is one of the most important pharmaceutical markets in the world. It has a vibrant research based industry based in Japan. Many of these companies are conducting clinical trials which support approvals, eventually, in Japan. Also, many of these companies are attempting to get approvals for their products outside of Japan. We are supporting them with those efforts. Conversely, many western companies are attempting to get their products registered in Japan and we are also working with those companies, helping them get their products on the market here and making their products available to patients here. We are very proud of our rebranding and our new market presentation. The slogan "Your Journey. Our Mission." summarizes our philosophy on how we approach our marketplace. Our clients often have an arduous task in front of them to try to get approval for products. It is PAREXEL's job to help them with that with all of our might and all of our efforts. We have no conflict of any sort. We have a complete focus in making sure that that journey from the original molecule in the laboratory to the patient is as simple and as painless as possible for our client.
