China will exempt import tariffs on 28 drugs including all cancer drugs from May 1 to fulfill its pledge of wider opening of the Chinese market, the ministry of finance said on Monday. 

The announcement followed a statement released after an executive meeting of the state council on April 12 that import tariffs on all common drugs should be scraped. 

The drugs including cancer drugs, cancer alkaloid-based drugs, and imported traditional Chinese medicine will be exempt from May 1. 

“The authorities will reduce the prices of cancer drugs through centralised government procurement and eliminate premium prices for drugs by means of cross-border e-commerce. 

“Imported innovative drugs, especially much-needed cancer drugs, will be incorporated into the catalogue of medical insurance reimbursement,” the ministry said.

According to the ministry, the measures will significantly enhance the availability and inclusiveness of the drugs and reduce the burden of patients, according to the ministry.

They will also help maintain an open and inclusive multilateral trade system and enable more people to share common prosperity.

According to the National Cancer Institute, the market for antineoplastic drugs in China exceeds 120 billion yuan (about 19.1 billion dollars).

However, they are usually too expensive for working class families. (Xinhua/NAN)
