This SPIC is very important to us. We would like to thank for their support the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the administration of the Kaluga region, where we will build our plant, and also Pfizer, our strategic partner who gives us valuable knowledge and technology for manufacturing the advanced and highly-demanded drugs,” said Alexander Kuzin, the General Director of NovaMedica.
