In January, President Donald Trump said, “We have got to get our drug industry back.” Later that month, at a meeting in the Oval Office with executives of eight large innovator pharmaceutical companies, he said he wanted them to bring drug prices “way down,” and promised to curb regulations and lower tax rates to boost their competitiveness.

We are encouraged by these developments and consider these efforts as only the first steps by the president to understand the challenges of domestic pharmaceutical manufacturing. Furthermore, the nomination of Scott Gottlieb to lead the Food and Drug Administration adds to our encouragement. Gottlieb was the at the FDA during the time when the FDA launched its initiative the Pharmaceutical CGMPs for the 21st Century. To that end, we offer some points to consider in efficiently catalyzing a renaissance of a technologically modern, efficient, high quality, and profitable pharmaceutical manufacturing in the United States.
