LONDON, May 19, 2011 - Business Monitor International (BMI) has announced its latest report,
China Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report.

The healthcare and pharmaceutical analysis
includes Business Monitor International's five and ten year forecast for
drugs and healthcare expenditure, imports and exports, and focuses on the
growth outlook for the prescription, OTC, patented drugs and generics market
segments. The forecasts are based on in depth analysis into industry trends
and new developments.

The China Analysis
report is designed to provide industry professionals, market investors and
corporate and financial services analysts with independent forecasts and
competitive intelligence on the Chinese pharmaceutical and healthcare
industry. The report is vital to these groups so that they can benchmark
BMI's independent five and ten year pharmaceutical and healthcare industry
forecasts on China, target business opportunities and risks in the Chinese
pharmaceutical and healthcare sector and assess the activities, strategy and
market position of pharmaceutical competitors, partners and clients.

Following the outcome of Q1 2011, BMI now predicts China will become the
most attractive pharmaceutical market in Asia Pacific within the next five
years. China has the world's most attractive emerging pharmaceutical market.
Driven by a booming economy and underpinned by political stability, demand
for medicines, both generic and patented, will continue to increase. However
- the key downside risk is further pricing pressures, which could intensify
in the event of an economic slowdown.
