  • Abstract: We discuss a famous Hi-tech park for biopharmaceutical firms in Shanghai, China, whose formulation and growth are all sponsored by the government. After the background analysis of the biopharmaceutical industry, we focus on this park, known as Pharmacy Valley. With detailed analysis, we believe that although under the intensive support of government, the cooperation network among firms is still far from well set up, the financing channel is under-built, and the aggregation is in the primary stage. For all the firms in Pharmacy Valley, the gap is large on the scale of the industry, innovative capability and industrialisation level compared with multinationals.
