JFCC Speaker Event with President Director Vidjongtius of Kalbe Farma

Fri, 27 Nov 2020

Dear members and friends,

We are delighted to host a speaker event with the head of Indonesian pharmaceutical company Kalbe Farma.

President Director Vidjongtius, who leads one of the companies racing to secure COVID-19 vaccines, will give an update on the vital push to secure vaccines in the world’s fourth-most populous country.

The company has been working with South Korea’s Genexine to produce a vaccine by mid-2021, as the government prepares the ground for a mass-vaccination programme in coming months.

Indonesia faces crucial questions over how a vaccine, one it is ready, can be rolled out to enough million people across a sprawling archipelago with shaky infrastructure in many areas.

How are private companies working with the government to meet the huge challenges of getting a coronavirus vaccine and can this work help boost the country’s pharmaceutical sector so it can produce affordable and reliable drugs for the country’s 270 million people .

Please join us for a timely discussion on the crucial race to get a vaccine.

Date : Friday, November 27, 2020

Time : 2 PM Jakarta
