In our markets
The growing demand for healthcare means increasing pressure on the budgets of governments and others who pay for it. We must manage the associated downward pressure on the price of our products, whilst continuing to invest in providing medicines that make a difference. During 2006, pricing pressure was particularly strong in Europe, where governments continue to introduce cost-containment measures such as jumbo reference pricing in Germany. In the US, still the world’s largest pharmaceutical market, the Democratic gains in the mid-term election may signal further changes to the pricing environment in that country. You can read more about this in the Geographic Review and Price Regulation sections (pages 33 and 50).

As we continue to focus on managing such challenges and building on our leading positions in established markets, we are also increasing our strength in fast-developing markets, such as China. During the year, we announced a $100 million R&D investment over the next three years in China, which reflects our commitment to building our presence in this important market. As part of this, I was pleased to hold in 2006 the first AstraZeneca Senior Executive Team meeting in that country.
