FDA Abroad - Pharmaceutical Executive:
"In India, America's second largest global source of API and finished drug products, some 1,965 manufacturing facilities export to the US, but only around 600 sites are registered with CDER, said Atul Agrawal, supervisory consumer safety officer at FDA's India office. Drug manufacturing capability in India doubled to represent 12% of total US drug imports in 2012, up from 6% in 2008. "India is a major player in the prescription drugs Americans take on a daily basis," said Agrawal, much to the envy of Chinese nationals everywhere. And yet, FDA's operation in India currently consists of five full-time Americans, and two locally employed staffers, spread across two offices, one in New Delhi and one in Mumbai."
