Director of SID & GP Vladislav Shestakov headed the business mission of Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers in Havana. The meeting between business and Cuban regulator CECMED was held on the eve of the official launch of the I International Meeting of Regulators of Drugs and Medical Products. The conference is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Center for the State Control of Medicines, Equipment and Medical Devices (CECMED).
Russia and Cuba today are strategic partners in the most diverse fields. This is based on rich historical friendship, mutual respect and interest. Russian pharma firms are being actively involved in the economic co-operation with Cuba. After all, there is tremendous development potential in certification of Cuban medicines for sale on the Russian market, entry of Russian biotechnological and pharmaceutical developments to the Cuban market, establishment of joint ventures in Cuba for producing medicines, opening of branches of Cuban pharma companies in special economic zones and techno-parks in Russia for development of medicines together with Russian manufacturers and scientific research institutes and much more. So our task as regulator is to provide comprehensive support for such important and socially significant initiatives while adhering to unified standards, rules and approaches to complying with proper practices»
