Regarding to this, Japanese government’s appeal is to let the policy and technology development become closer, more organized and flexible, and commit to expanding the market and accelerating the development of computer science and biotechnology.

The technology integration is real data and domain technology for biotechnology, which combines big data in various fields with cutting edge technologies such as genetic technology, AIoT, bioinformatics, etc. As well as connects to the country that has sound system on biomedical, such as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, etc., in order to become the well-known country in global biotechnology industry.

The future of drug development and innovation

George Nakayama, president of Japan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (JPMA), introduced that JPMA consists of 71 research-based pharmaceuticals in Japan and is a research-oriented voluntary organization.

He mentioned that Japan should work hard in three directions to catch up with the United States. To begin with, the establishment of the infrastructure, including the establishment of a health care database, such as genome and clinical diagnostic information, and the construction of ID facilities. Then, in order to provide sufficient funds for basic scientific research, the government and industry should cooperate to create profits. Finally, the government should establish an ecosystem without borders, especially establish a close relationship with the United States actively.
