It may be note that The pharmaceutical market in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and specially Yemen is growing rapidly and is projected to grow into an estimated US$10-billion industry by 2020. There were 46 pharmaceutical manufacturing plants in the GCC and Yemen in 2010. The combined investments of the region in this sector during the same year stood at US$830-million, providing jobs for 8,000 people, yet the region still imports the bulk of its medicines. This industry was growing six percent annually but local pharmaceutical companies have not been able to meet this growth. The GCC and Yemen was currently importing 90% of its medicines. “There are significant opportunities for growth and expansion of this sector in the GCC so that in future it will be able to meet a substantial part of the requirements of the region with the possibility of exporting them to neighboring countries,”
