Words of welcome by Victor Dmitriev, general director of the Association of Russian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
I am glad to welcome you on behalf of the Association of Russian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers to the major pharmaceutical event — 21st International specialized exhibition “Apteka-2014” and Medical and Pharmaceutical Business Forum.
“APTEKA” exhibition has been one of the most respectable industry-specific events for many years. The exhibition and the Forum have gained a reputation of a meeting place that brings together specialists of all ranks and ordinary people — our customers and patients. Moreover, we have the best opportunity for active business communication, experience exchanging, discussion of various industry issues.
This year the Association of Russian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers organizes a session called “Russian pharmaceutical industry 2014: mission possible” that will highlight the most topical issues for the drug manufacturers, including "Pharma 2020"strategy implementation, import substitution, technological modernization of Russian pharmaceutical plants, export opportunities for Russian drugs, and many others.
With all my heart, I would like to wish you to establish new business contacts and to have efficient and fruitful work at the show!
