The Beijing Development and Reform Commission has launched a new policy of allowing convenience stores to sell off-the-counter drugs. As soon as the news came out, 450000 drugstores across the country panicked and the industry turned upside down. Beijing fired the first shot at change!
In a recent circular on measures to further promote the development of convenience stores, the Beijing Municipal Development and Reform Commission clearly pointed out two points: 1, chain convenience stores can apply for the retail operation of category B over-the-counter drugs; 2. Apply for second-class medical device management.
