Greetings from IPCA and the LOC of 68thIPC
I am delighted to be elected as the President of IPCA for the year 2016-17 and express my deep sense of gratitude to the IPCA and IPA for bestowing the honor to preside over the 68th Indian Pharmaceutical Congress 2016, the flagship event of the IPCA. The 68th IPC to be hosted by IPA will be held during December 16-18, 2016 in the beautiful coastal city of Visakhapatnam at the prestigious Andhra University College of Pharmaceutical Sciences.


The theme of the 68th IPC is an extension of the previous IPC theme "Pharma Vision 2020-Pharmacists for a Healthy India" with a tag line, 'Quality Pharmaceuticals and Patient Welfare'. The theme would allow the Congress to focus on challenges faced by the Indian Pharma Industry in continuous production of quality pharmaceuticals in compliance with the global regulatory requirements and the role of a pharmacy professional in that process. The theme would also address the role of pharmacists in the continued evaluation of these pharmaceuticals during their clinical use in assuring safety to the patients through pharmacovigilance & outcome evaluation studies and finally, how the pharmacists could transform India from the position of a global pharmacy to an enviable position of the global wellness provider. As pharmacists, we have the responsibility to focus on patient's welfare while producing quality pharmaceuticals.


The local organizing committee (LOC) formed under the guidance of an IPA core committee is making all the arrangements required to make the 68th IPC a unique and memorable one. I am confident that the scientific programme would address the theme of the congress in all aspects and will be of interest to professionals from the Pharmaceutical Industry, Regulatory, Academia, Research, Pharmacy Practice and Students to garner participation from all facets of the profession in large number.


The IPC Expo 2016 will have a new exhibition partner -Orbit Exhibitions which, will be taking the responsibility of making the Pharma Expo a great show. I would like to request all the stakeholders to participate, exhibit and make this Expo a huge success and help us to build a strong brand of IPC Expo for the future. I request all the pharmacy professionals to support the 68th IPC by participating in large number and making it a resounding success.


Looking forward to meeting you all in the 68th IPC-2016 in Visakhapatnam in December 2016
