ABPI chief executive Stephen Whitehead said: “I believe that James will enable the MMIP to work towards creating an attractive and innovation-driven environment to ensure UK competitiveness in medicines manufacturing. This new role is an investment which will enable us to boost our leadership capability in this area.”
