Establish lasting relationships with experienced, competent distributors that you trust to enhance your sales in Asia.
It can be challenging to find and build relationships with trustworthy, reliable pharmaceutical distributors in Asia. A close analysis of their past sales performance and the strength of their networks within each Asian country is necessary to determine whether they will be an effective distributor for your drug product.
It is essential to conduct thorough due diligence and know the appropriate targeted questions that need to be asked. For example:
- Does the distributor have experienced in-house regulatory personnel to assist with product registration?
- Does the distributor have a qualified sales and marketing team?
- Does the distributor understand the concept of “conflict of interest”?
- Are the distributor’s employees sufficiently fluent in English to communicate, or will it be necessary for you to speak the distributor’s local Asian language?
