India to invest in infrastructure that drugmakers can share

India intends to establish 10 drug manufacturing clusters in the country and invest in infrastructure there like water, power and sewer treatment facilities that drugmakers can share in an effort to cut costs. Ananth Kumar, minister of Chemicals and Fertilisers, told the Economic Times that the intent was to help the industry become more globally competitive and in turn make healthcare in India more affordable. It is expected the clusters would allow drugmakers to reduce expenses by 25%. The country is preparing to invest about $27.3 million in the infrastructure projects. Story | More from FiercePharmaAsia
