Mr. Wondiyfraw Worku, World Health Organization (WHO)

After a warm welcome and opening note by the Chief Executive of PMDA, Dr. Tatsuya Kondo, a number of well delivered presentations covering the scientific and legal frame work for PMDA's role as a stringent regulatory authority and forerunner of regulatory science as well as review and approval process for new drugs, generics, OTCs, quasi-drug and cosmetics were provided. All our questions were adequately addressed. I believe such workshops have important role in explaining to fellow regulators how a stringent functional regulatory system operates and in establishing trust for collaborative work in an ever growing and resource demanding activities such as regulations.
