James Christie, ABPIThe Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) has named James Christie as its first project director with responsibility for manufacturing.

Christie's primary focus will head the implementation of work under the Medicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MMIP) as approved recently by the Ministerial Industry Strategy Group.

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.”
