I think North East Pharmaceutical Convention (NEPC) is the only dedicated exhibition and conference focused solely on supporting and developing the pharmaceutical industry across the North Eastern region of India. I hope that it will bring all parts of the pharmaceutical sector together so that new partnerships can be created, new ideas can be forged, best practice experience can be shared, and business can ultimately be done. All under one roof and across two very exciting days, looking forward at Maniram Dewan Trade Centre, Guwahati, Assam on 6-7th May, 2017.
