A new head of government affairs has been appointed by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) to spearhead its work with politicians and those in government in both the UK and Europe.

"With a general election looming, I am looking forward to getting straight down to the business of talking to MPs, parliamentary candidates, researchers and others about the pharmaceutical industry's vital contribution to the health and wealth of the country," Stuart said.

"Whatever the result of the general election, it is crucial that the industry's voice is heard and its messages clearly understood. I relish the task."

Dr Richard Barker, director general of the ABPI, said: "Amanda has a challenging role in challenging times, but I am confident she will play a vital part in making better understood the industry's role in researching, developing and manufacturing increasingly sophisticated medicines to improve people's health."

Stuart, 30, is co-founder of Women in Communications Inc, London, which aims to support women in all areas of communication, including the promotion of female candidates. At Insight, she provided high-level advice to clients in politics and healthcare.
