Eastwei has more than 45 staff in offices located in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, and clients including Bayer and Roche. Its principal is Johan Bjorksten.
News of the partnership with Eastwei follows New York-headquartered CCA's announcement five months ago of a joint venture with Macoll, which is based in South Korea (PRWeek, 28 January).
CCA co-founders Robert Chandler and Gianfranco Chicco are considering adding an office in Japan. The former said the Chinese had a growing 'desire for Western medicine'.
