Belarus is increasing exports of medicines to Georgia and will share its experience in transplantation and surgery. This was announced by Valery Malashko, the Minister of Health of Belarus, in an interview with BelTA news agency.
“Here, we work primarily through our state companies, such as Belmedpreparaty RUE, BorisovskiyZavodMedicinskikhPreparatov JSC, Minskintercaps UE, and Ekzon JSC. These are the four main companies exporting products to Georgia. The contracts signed today provide for supplies of medicinal products worth almost $1 million,” said the Minister.
He mentioned increased volume of supplied drugs.
“To a large extent, we have already captured this market, and we have a good reputation. Today, I will meet with distributors from Georgian side to find out how far we can go further. About 160 medicinal products have been registered in Georgia. Another 18 drugs are in the process of registration. This is clearly not the limit,” said Valery Malashko.
The Minister also considers it important to actively involve private pharmaceutical businesses in cooperation.
“The potential there is very high. Moreover, it exists in various formats. This includes not only supplies of finished dosage forms, but also “in bulk,” that is, to package the medicines locally. I hope that here we will have advantage not only in terms of quality but also in terms of price,” he said.
