      Shanghai Pharmaceuticals on the prowl for acquisitions in US and Europe

      Shanghai Pharmaceuticals Holding, one of China’s largest pharmaceutical firms, is scouting for acquisitions in the United States and Europe, despite increased scrutiny of Chinese investments.Acquisitions, including overseas ones, is one of the firm’s two-pronged development strategy besides in-house research and development, according to chairman of Zhou Jun.
      “We are deploying more people and financial resources to do our own research and development, and are also seeking to gain technology and market access through the short-cut route of acquisitions,” he told the South China Morning Post in an interview on the sidelines of the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco earlier this month.
