4 February 2016
SINGAPORE — CIDP, Centre International de Développement Pharmaceutique, a Mauritius-based private and independent Contract Research Organization (CRO), inaugurates its new Asia subsidiary in Singapore. This marks the Group’s first foray into the Asia-Pacific region, and is its fourth subsidiary after the ones located in Romania, India, and Brazil.
“We felt the need to expand internationally in order to broaden our services and diversify our skills”,
“This fueled our decision to set up a new subsidiary in Asia, a region we are keen to serve due to its increasing economic importance. Singapore was a logical choice for our Asia office because of its excellent infrastructure, transparency of requirements and regulations, and convenient access to Asian markets. We are confident that this new venture will bring CIDP to greater heights.”
CIDP’s Singapore subsidiary was officially unveiled in a ceremony held on 27 January. The opening was officiated by Claire Blazy-Jauzac, Group Managing Director of CIDP, and was attended by around 50 guests, including clients, business partners, embassy, and association representatives, etc. Located in Biopolis, an international research and development hub for biomedical sciences, the fully operational center is equipped with the latest technologies, and its investiture will enable CIDP to enhance its expertise in dermatology and cosmetics activities, and facilitate the development of new partnerships in R&D across the region.
“It’s a good thing to have more CROs in Singapore catering to local and regional companies that seek professional services for their development projects. I think CIDP’s presence in Singapore will help the industry, both for large laboratories that will benefit from the CIDP’s expertise in dermatology and cosmetics for their clinical research projects, and for start-ups who fully outsource their in vitro or in vivo testing needs. I would like to congratulate CIDP on their expansion and I Iook forward to more fruitful collaborations and new developments within the industry from Singapore and beyond.”
