How Penicillin came into being in China

In 1948, an American, who bore a title of the so-called “expert”, came to China and said he would like to “assist” China in the construction of a penicillin plant. The KMT government entertained this “allied friend” as a distinguished guest. During the negotiations this so-called expert protruded three fingers for the three conditions for the proposed plant: first, the production facilities should be ordered from the US; second, the pharmaceutical technicians should be dispatched from the US and third 50% of the profit as generated following the commercial operation of the plant should go to the US.
Ever since the founding of New China, “we cannot rely on the Yankees,” was the idea agreed to even without prior consultation by and between the military representative Shi Yumin and the antibiotic expert Tong Cun and both of them worked together on the major program on the preparation for construction of the antibiotic plants in New China. Mayor Chen Yi approved in person the plant construction projection and the East China Administration appointed 9 comrades, including Shi Yumin, Tong Cun, Song Guobin, Ma Shijie, GeFuzhen, Huang Fengqiu, QiuBeishan, Chen Haoxian and Yuan Shaoting, to be the members of the Plant Set-up Committee. Since then, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the antibiotic young people of New China followed Dr. Tong Cun and dedicated themselves to the establishment of the “Penicillin Lab” and the drawing of a wonderful blueprint of the antibiotic undertakings in the New China.
In April 1951, the trial production of the Penicillin Sylvite was successfully accomplished. Hence the commencement of the antibiotic industry in China. With drums beating and cymbals clashing, Dr. Tong Cun tightly held the hands of a leader from the East China Administration and choked with sobs, “we have eventually removed the shame of being unable to produce penicillin in China,” his eyes filled with tears.
Starting from the early 1990s, the EC launched the anti-dumping investigations against China on theDihydrostreptomycin, while No. 4 Pharmaceutical Plant of Shanghai and Sichuan Changzheng Pharmaceutical Plant took the initiatives to counteract and after the “lawsuits” that prolonged for 5 years, we eventually won the proceedings. That is noted to be the first case of anti-dump counteractions, in which the Chinese pharmaceutical industry hasever been involved.
