The Asia-Pacific region is growing in importance in the global healthcare sector and this new subsidiary will serve as a focus for eTheRNA’s increasing commercial activities in this area. In particular, eTheRNA Asia will focus on supporting business and investor relations in China and especially the relationship between eTheRNA and its strategic partner, China Grand Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Holdings Ltd (‘CGP’). CGP and eTheRNA’s relationship is centred on their joint venture company, Nanjing AuroRNA Biotechnology Company Limited.

Through our Chinese investors and partners we have developed strong links with the region and look forward to increasing our activities and contributing to help fulfil this ambition.”
