The event also features debates and discussions on varied topics and hurdles faced in the past. This edition of the summit and award show will include a debate on Brand India Pharma, in line with the Indian government's objective and vision to protect the pharmaceutical industry in the global context.

With the government of India's game changing theory to move ahead with ambitious plans to spend nearly USD 5 billion to supply free drugs to patients - bringing the country closer to universal health coverage, the 5th Annual Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit & Business Leadership Awards 2012 will be the ultimate destination for a serious debate on Brand India. The 5th Annual Pharmaceutical Leadership Summit will also see the Business Leadership Awards to felicitate the top performers in 30 categories, who will be put under voting for the next two months."
