Pharma Security Asia 2019
February 19 - February 20

However, with the growth of the industry in Asia comes the increase in fake drugs. In recent times, these products are still being produced and passed down to consumers in large quantities amidst the impact of the various counterfeiting hubs that have been seen to operate on a global scale.
