Draft rules for pharmaceuticals cause concern

On August 4, 2016, Taiwan’s Executive Yuan (the executive branch of central government) passed a draft amendment to the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act (Amendment), which was proposed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. This amendment was drafted in response to Taiwan’s negotiations on joining the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal.
