Russia must urgently return to the technological independence of the pharmaceutical industry – Mishustin – Russia |
4th of July. Interfax-Russia.ru – Russia needs to start developing a pharmaceutical industry that would be completely independent of the combination of components, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.
“The pandemic has shown how important it is to have a self-sufficient pharmaceutical industry. Now it is obvious to everyone that this is a strategic value, ensuring the country’s security. Technological independence in biological and chemical substances, raw materials, equipment,” Mishustin said, speaking at the International Industrial Exhibition (“Innoprom “).
The most important segment in this industry, he noted, is low-tonnage chemistry. The prime minister reminded that the development instructions had already been given. “Your own small-tonnage vehicle is needed not only for pharmaceuticals, but also for a wide range – from industry to mechanical engineering and the building materials industry, including for the development of radio electronics, which is the foundation of the digitalization of the economy,” the prime minister said.
