The prospects for further mutually beneficial collaboration were discussed at the meeting of Taymuraz Tuskayev, the Chairman of the Republican Government of North Ossetia, and Mikhail Ratmanov, the Health Minister of the Republic, with Alexander Apazov, the President of PJSC Pharmimex, and Inga Nizharadze, the Vice President of the company, who visited Vladikavkaz.
A proposal made at the meeting involves the implementation of a joint public-private partnership project to establish a plasma center, which will use advanced technology and create new jobs in the region. Depending on final decision, the approximate amount of investments will range from 250 to 400 million rubles.
The plasma center will be established as a branch of existing blood transfusion station together with a laboratory unit and storage facility. The plans also include the training of personnel, added Inga Nizharadze.
“It allows North Ossetia to participate in the import substitution program,” said the Vice President of Pharmimex. “This will be achieved by sending plasma, the final product, to the plant for production of important blood-derived products. Production line comprises 8-9 products, most of which come to Russia through imports.”
At the initial stage of the project, the plasma center will have 30 employees. As it develops, the number of jobs will increase to 60 employees.
