SABIC AND THE CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES SIGN STRATEGIC COLLABORATION AGREEMENT TO PROPEL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY IN CHINA


484To propel the progress of science and technology in China, SABIC and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a public research and education institution in China, today signed a landmark strategic collaboration agreement to further research, intellectual exchange and talent development. The five-year agreement with a multi-million US dollar investment by SABIC, will cover joint research in the chemical and chemical engineering fields to develop advanced technologies and solutions, allowing SABIC to bring to market the results of collaborative research.

The agreement was signed in Beijing by Ernesto Occhiello, Executive Vice President, Technology and Innovation, SABIC and Ding Zhongli, Vice President of CAS and President of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS).

This marks the initiation and expansion of new and existing research relationships between SABIC and CAS affiliated institutes in China. In addition to research collaborations, the two organizations will work together to jointly sponsor an annual Scientific Forum on Frontiers of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The first Scientific Forum will be held on September 14-15 at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP).

The first Forum will establish the focus of collaborative scientific efforts between SABIC and CAS, applying innovation and sustainability principles to expand the utility of feedstock, harness the potential of nanotechnology, and explore advancements in composite materials, with the ultimate aim of bringing exponential benefits to industry and society at large. Whether it is lightweight technology that enables fuel efficiency, materials that enable safety while maintaining performance, solutions that are designed with sustainability in mind or innovative applications that perform more reliably over the long-term, SABIC is continually developing solutions from chemistry which enable our customers to achieve their commercial ambitions and solve critical industry problems.

In addition, the collaboration agreement also incubates local innovation to drive growth with the establishment of an annual SABIC-CAS Scholarship. It aims at stimulating scholarly pursuits by recognizing outstanding scientists, engineers and students from across China.

SABIC’s commitment to enabling growth in the industry will also take shape in the sponsorship of the Graduate Student Internship and Visiting Scholar Program. CAS graduate students and scientists can apply for or be invited to study and conduct research at the SABIC Corporate Research Institute at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology or at one of the SABIC Technology and Innovation Centers around the world.

Mohamed Al-Mady, SABIC Vice Chairman and CEO, commented, “As the growth engine for SABIC in Asia, we continually explore new areas of transformation for China, in China, and with China. We are supporting reform by providing customers and markets with the solutions they need as China progresses along its unique path of development. Partnering with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the linchpin of China’s drive to explore and harness high technology and natural sciences, will elevate SABIC’s efforts in helping to make the ‘China Dream’ an enduring reality.”

Ding Zhongli, Vice President of CAS and President of UCAS, said, “We are pleased to be partnering with a leader in petrochemical and chemical technology innovation to combine our individual expertise to advance science and technology in China for the betterment of society and modern living. As we strive to build CAS into a world-class scientific research base for cultivating talent and promoting the development of China’s high and new technology industries, we will continue to partner with international players like SABIC who demonstrate strong commitment and innovation in their sustainable solutions.”

Ernesto Occhiello, SABIC Executive Vice President, Technology and Innovation, explained how SABIC prizes innovation, ingenuity and collaboration as core drivers of its business, and more importantly, as the keys to solving some of the pressing problems facing society in areas such as air quality, clean water, food safety and security, energy efficiency and green industry growth.

“Scientific endeavor is the impetus to what we can accomplish in our industry – this is given due recognition in our strategic collaboration with a premier research institution like CAS. We are on a quest to spearhead technological advancement for material solutions, to explore sustainable ways to get more and better use out of natural resources in the form of existing feedstock supplies. We at SABIC are working to realize tangible ways to help people live better and more comfortably, today and tomorrow,” he added.

SABIC has already had several collaborations with CAS institutes. Last December, SABIC and DICP, which is part of CAS, established the SABIC-DICP Research Center for Advanced Chemicals Production Technology, a research center for advanced chemicals production technology to tackle scientific problems and develop new material solutions. Since its inception, the Center has launched two research projects in developing new routes to transform unconventional feedstock into basic chemicals. The Center will also recognize the two “SABIC Chair” Professors who have made outstanding contributions to the research accomplishments and academic reputation of DICP.

Boehringer Ingelheim enters into tripartite agreement with Cigalah and Tabuk for local production in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


45Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, entered into a tripartite agreement for local production in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with Cigalah and Tabouk. This came from Boehringer Ingelheim’s interest in expanding in KSA with innovative medicines. Tabuk, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Company, as a local manufacturing leader who wants to strengthen its products and services offering to Saudi patients, and Cigala as a major healthcare distribution player with strong local infrastructure – along with Boehringer Ingelheim, all have decided to combine scientific know-how, technical expertise, and local infrastructure to serve the Saudi patients. With this contract, Cigalah and Tabuk will manage and drive complex secondary packaging projects of 26 products for Boehringer Ingelheim from the starting point until full implementation to become finished goods. This is the first milestone towards Boehringer Ingelheim’s future local primary manufacturing in the kingdom.

With Boehringer Ingelheim’s investment, interest to expand in KSA and partnering with local manufacturing units, the company will be able to offer more innovative medicines for Saudi patients, helping them to improve health and quality of life. In addition, the partnership aims to seed job opportunities, and act as a business driver where Boehringer Ingelheim contributes to the development of the overall pharmaceutical sector. The company has established its full end-to-end capabilities in Saudi Arabia and will continue to increase its own local investments in the pharmacutical space as well as local talent in order to drive socio-economic development; creating value for individuals and society as a whole.

The contract between the Companies was signed by Dr. Abdul Aziz AL Serafi CEO consultant of Cigalah Group, Dr Hamad Al Khamees, General Manager Saudi Arabia Tabuk and Mohammed Al Tawil, General Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim Middle East and Near East Area.

The local production in Saudi Arabia satisfies only 15% of the demand and imports account for 85% of the domestic market1. The locally-grown companies primarily make generic drugs, while some also undertake under-license manufacturing and packaging on behalf of multinational pharmaceutical companies for supply in the domestic and regional markets.

The agreement will help to establish new capabilities and capacities and a more effective supply chain to support Boehringer Ingelheim’s ambitious business plan and expansion in Saudi Arabia. As the healthcare expenditure is forecasted to grow from 3.5% in 2010 to 6% of GDP by 20201, this partnership marks a significant step towards meeting the demand for quality medicines in the region while strengthening the infrastructure to locally provide therapies at par with the international standards.

Commenting on the agreement, Mohammed Al Tawil, General Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim Middle East and Near East Area, said, “We are delighted to enter into an agreement with Cigalah Group and Tabuk. As a leading global pharmaceutical company, we are committed to lead development and optimization of product specifications, testing protocols, qualification and validation of packaging thus ensuring product quality and safety. With this agreement we aim to reinforce our goal to make quality products and access to medication in the Kingdom.”

He further added, “All these activities show Boehringer Ingelheim’s commitment to supporting innovation and growing our business further in KSA – the most strategic pharma markets in the region. With the right infrastructure in place, Boehringer Ingelheim’ is dedicated to supporting the development of its partners and the communities in which it operates. To that end, Boehringer Ingelheim will continue to develop solutions that create a sound industry ecosystem and enrich life through pharmaceutical enhancements. “

Dr. Abdul Aziz AL Serafi CEO consultant of Cigalah Group, said, “We are happy to be associated with Boehringer Ingelheim and are sure that the cooperation between the two companies will be beneficial for the pharmaceutical sector with regards to quality, safety and accessibility of medication in the Kingdom.”

Dr Hamad Al Khamees, General Manager Saudi Arabia Tabuk , commented, “Being associated with a global brand like Boehringer Ingelheim and locally with Cigalah Group gives us an opportunity to best leverage our expertise in the local production space. We are excited about the opportunity given to us and looking for future further cooperation with Boehringer Ingelheim.”

The tripartite agreement enables Boehringer Ingelheim to contract Cigalah for the secondary packaging and authorizes Cigalah to implement and conduct the packaging production at Tabuk facilities.

Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest per capita single market for medical products and equipment, accounting for 59.4% of the Gulf’s overall pharmaceutical industry size1. Total market size in KSA constitutes of 24% international companies, 41% top 10 multinational companies and 35% local companies. Among the GCC countries Saudi Arabia has the largest number of local pharmaceutical manufacturing plants totaling 27 with an investment of US$ 619 million.

Packaging is a highly regulated end stage of the drug production process aimed at not only safeguarding the drug against contamination but also ensuring its durability, visibility, sterility and strength. The partnership is aimed at optimization of the packaging process and providing medicines as finished goods which can help in reducing costs while maintaining the international product quality.
