Middle East North Africa - Global Innovation Hub

1:45 PM - 2:00 PM, Wednesday, June 5, 2019 ・ Theater 4
Emerging markets are sprouting across the globe, some growing at a rapid pace, even becoming innovation hubs. The steady increase in the number of resident patent applications as well as foreign filings in Saudi Arabia and the MENA region as a whole can be used as a benchmark index. More companies from more industries are attracted to the potential the region has to offer, and more importantly, to the increased risk of loss of market share or exclusivity in that region. The presentation briefly describes the opportunities and risks catalyzing the increasing interest in seeking adequate IP protection and enforcement in a number of countries in the Middle East, Near East and Africa. Please join us as Saba & Co. IP shares why Saudi Arabia and the MENA region is a global hub for biotech innovation: 1) Rapidly growing market 2) Strategic regional positioning 3) Opportunity for regional expansion 4) Partnering opportunities for local R&D or manufacturing 5) High risk from local generics
