Welcome to Welocalize Life Sciences’ Global Communicator.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most highly regulated industries. However, despite the many rules and regulations, there are many regions of the world experiencing strong growth in this sector. For example, the pharmaceutical market in Brazil is predicted to rise from $25.5 billion in 2016 to $29.9 billion in 2021 according to research and consulting firm GlobalData. In this issue, we share details about regulatory agencies and drug and device registration processes in Brazil.

Our language focus for this issue is Portuguese. We have compiled numerous language and life sciences industry data points to help you on your global journey. We also introduce you to Hugo Riu, a quality and training director at Welocalize Life Sciences who speaks several languages—including Portuguese—and share news about our upcoming events.
