This symposium is the joint conference hosted by East Asia Relations Commission and Interchange Association, Japan, with the aim to enhance mutual understandings, and to construct a basis in a cooperative system across the region for further development in pharmaceutical regulations and health insurance system under the MOU of 5 items signed between Taiwan and Japan on 5th November 2013.
