GPFI F Chairman Tirto Kusnadi signed the LoI with FPMAJ Director General Toshihiko Miyajima during the Indonesia-Japan pharmaceutical and medical device business forum in the presence of Indonesian Ambassador to Japan and Micronesia Federation Heri Akhmadi and Osaka-based Indonesian Consul General Dina Sutikno.

One of the objectives of signing the LoI at the business forum is to support one of the grand themes of Indonesia's G20 Presidency--strengthening global health architecture.

Indonesian pharmaceutical and medical device industry is one of the potential sectors, with a positive growth of 2.1% in the second quarter of this year.

As such, various incentives and easy regulations will be offered in the Indonesian pharmaceutical and medical device sector./.
