During the visit, the two parties discussed the cooperation of new drug research and the sharing of academic resources in the field of pharmacology, pharmaceutics, medical chemistry and biotechnology. They also explored the possibility of collaboration in clinical pharmacy education and clinical tests of new drugs.
