Belarusian medicines became the topic of the talk show What’s Going On.
Does promotion of domestic medicines have economic character? Is it focused on health, wallet, or commercial competition?
Dmitry Shevtsov, deputy of the House of Representatives of Belarus, head of Belarusian Doctors’ Association:
We are killing two birds with one stone. We are developing Belarusian industry. As it was mentioned, all medicines, both Belarusian and foreign, that exist on the Belarusian market are subject to a strict control, that’s why the government guarantees the quality of pharmaceutical products.
Of course, we should develop our domestic manufactory, to make medicines cheaper as we are competing with others.
The most important thing is that we have our own pharmaceutical industry. We just need to develop it further.
