       Ranbaxy SA has also adopted an integrated marketing strategy to address the needs of Funders, Prescribers and Dispensers. The
       objective is to build an enviable corporate image of Ranbaxy. As a first step in this direction, the Company, early this year,
       organized a week long visit for a high level delegation of 20 top customers from South Africa.
       The trip was a part of its pharmacy and managed healthcare KOL program. The tour was an effort at building a personal rapport
       with customers and exposing our state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D units in India.
       Mr Ramesh Adige, Whole-time Director, Corporate Affairs & Global Corporate Communications, Ranbaxy, met the delegation in
       India and apprized them of Ranbaxy's global operations and R&D. Ms Anneilze Getschmann, CEO, Chronic Care, during her visit
       to Dewas, expressed her delight at seeing the Quality standards of manufacturing at Ranbaxy.
