Besides other Russian leading pharmaceutical companies, GEROPHARM Group
was also awarded with honorary prizes for contribution to the
development of local pharmaceutical industry.
The discussion session of the conference "PharmMedprom 2015" addressed
the questions related to import substitution in the sphere of health
care. The conference touched upon the issues concerning drug and medical
products availability and the ways of reducing dependence on import.
The government supportive measures towards the local pharmaceutical
manufacturers, which are supposed to increase the share of Russian drug
products within the country and abroad, were also discussed.
"The products manufactured from scratch and the production of
substances itself can provide an opportunity to develop export," says
Petr Rodionov, the head of GEROPHARM Group. If we set a goal to create
products that should be competitive beyond the Russian Federation, we
have to be able to build a full cycle production, starting with the gene
designing and finishing with the production of finished filled drug
forms. Only our own technological platform and these unique competences
give an advantage to enter new markets and be commercially successful
not only on the territory of Russia and the CIS countries, but also
beyond that, in the Arab countries or Latin America, for instance".
The "Health care" exhibition is one of the most large-scale specialized exhibitions in the sphere of medicine, where new projects on medical equipment and drug products, innovative medical products and modern consumables are presented.
