The Ministry of Industry and Trade is at the closing stage of working out supplementary measures aimed at supporting pharmaceutical manufacturers in Russia. It was stated by Head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov during his visit to Pharmstandard-Leksredstva OAO in Kursk.
Support tools for domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers are provided for in the regulation developed by the Ministry. It has already been approved by the Ministry of Health Care and will be submitted to the Government for consideration in the middle of October this year. Denis Manturov said that this regulation would facilitate the solution to our strategic mission that is to drastically increase the share of home pharmaceuticals in the internal market.
The issues concerning lending support to domestic health care companies are of high priority and widely discussed at the Russian Health Care Week annually held at Expocentre Fairgrounds. In 2013 the Russian Health Care Week featured the Second Russian Medical Investment Forum, whose participants consider opportunities of state incentives of investing into pharmaceutical and health care industries. The participants in the discussion were representatives of authorities, relevant ministries and departments, pharmaceutical companies, industry associations and unions, organizations which develop, manufacture and supply medical equipment, and the largest Russian and international investment companies and banks.
This subject will be continued at the forthcoming Russian Health Care Week 2014, which will run from December 8 to 12 at Expocentre Fairgrounds. Its participants and visitors will be able to receive more information and discuss supplementary measures of state support for Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers, which are stipulated by the regulation of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
