Sanofi, a pioneer in China

This commitment started 30 years ago when Sanofi became the first foreign pharmaceutical group to open offices in China. Between 1982 and 1988, the Group has signed Traditional Chinese Medicine research agreement with Shanghai and Beijing Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Furthermore, in 1995, Sanofi established the first French pharmaceutical joint venture in China with the Hangzhou-based pharmaceutical company Minsheng Pharmaceutical Group which is wholly owned by Sanofi since 2009. One year later, Pasteur Merieux Connaught became the first multinational vaccine company to establish in China. Since 2005, the Group established its China Clinical Research Unit in Shanghai to conduct high quality trials and contribute to global clinical development. In 2007, Sanofi Pasteur announced investment in a world-class flu vaccine facility in Shenzhen. In 2008, Sanofi has set up a China R&D Center in Shanghai to speed up our research for the benefit of the Chinese population. Lastly, in 2011, Sanofi acquired BMP Sunstone to expand its presence in consumer healthcare in China
