Event Summary

Recent improvements in local regulation, added to the high expertise and development of biosimilars in the region are encouraging

multinational pharmaceutical companies to enter this emerging market. Global pharmaceutical companies are partnering with local businesses to penetrate the market, with the idea of producing and  ommercialising locally and internationally. The first biosimilar to enter the region was insulin, followed by interferon and more recently monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). The last ones are still in an early stage and need further development. MAbs represent an opportunity for areas such as oncology, allergology and rheumatoid arthritis, and will probably widen the biosimilars market, but currently are far more expensive than other biologics.

The Brazilian healthcare system provides universal access to health to the population, and since 2012 has been discussing with some companies for the nationalization of some biologic drugs, through the productive development partnership policy (PDPs) and the support from BNDES. Choosing biosimilars over innovators would reduce healthcare spending by offering lower-cost alternatives to high-priced biologics.

The Biosimilars market is expected to boom in the next two years partly because of the patent expiration for most of the blockbuster biologics.

In the past some biosimilars got approval under a more lax regulation, but a more exhaustive one will be required in the future, ensuring higher quality and control. Establishing a rigorous regulation will stimulate market growth, which is expected to grow through Latin America at a significant rate in the next few years.

The challenge ahead is to offer similar safety and effectiveness as the innovators, while complying with global quality standards and at the same time maintaining lower prices.

Event Summary: It has been forecasted through a global survey that LatAm leads the world in talent shortage and skill gap. Five out of ten countries that have faced  the similar problems in 2014 -15 are within the Latin American Region itself. Energy companies find it difficult to retain workers at times of crisis creating the need for innovative strategies of employee engagement and creative retention plans. With this constant rise and fall of problems in the Energy sector in Latin America, HR professionals across the Energy Sector are on the hunt to tackle the never ending demands of the HR industry. With the success of the 2nd Latin America HR Summit in 2013, Fleming Gulf returns with the 3rd Edition of the LatAm HR in Energy summit providing a platform to resolve the challenges, issues and the best solutions faced by the HR domain.
