There is also the strong ability to deliver niche as well as volume-based services from India. For QED, our operations in India will also serve as hub to support services in other neighboring countries ensuring further regional control of our local partners.
How important is it for QED to have a presence in the Asia Pacific market?
Mr Ogorka: QED has a 10-year heritage of delivery and customer focus with increasing access to local knowledge to deliver global, regional or multi-national full service studies. The QED emphasis on customer service means that we listen to the needs of our customers. It is clear that Asia Pacific is an important and developing need for small to mid-sized customers as well as big pharma, and QED has therefore invested in the highest quality of local talent and service offerings in the region to ensure that customers can access full service capability with the added comfort of the emphasis on service that our model is able to offer.
What is the progress of the site? Is it ready for operations? Who heads the India operations?
Mr Ogorka: Its fully functional and we are already delivering projects for international sponsors.
