NDRC mulls trial scheme for medicine price reform, paper says

The National Development and Reform Commission plans to launch a trial scheme for medicine price reform to promote affordable drugs, the Economic Information Daily reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed person with knowledge of the matter. The reform involves reducing the prices of some Chinese medicines and a low-price medicine catalogue list, according to the newspaper. In October last year the NDRC started looking into the pricing and cost structures of Chinese drug makers, the report said.
