In 2013, there was a breaking news that China government would start to investigate the corruption of GSK. So now, should the global pharma/foreign pharma go to China to conduct clinical trial? If the sponsor wants to access China market and provide unmet medical needs to China market, there are still many opportunities and there are ways to get all of these barriers resolved.
