MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) – Minsk and Tokyo are set to develop cooperation in transplantology and advanced technologies, Chairman of the Healthcare Committee of the Minsk City Hall Igor Yurkevich told journalists, BelTA has learned.

“We are eager to develop cooperation in transplantology. Head of the Belarusian Center for Organ and Tissue Transplantation Oleg Rummo is currently on a visit to Tokyo. Two Japanese nationals have already undergone transplants in Minsk. We also have plans to implement joint projects in cardiology and oncology. The Japanese partners are interested in our experience in the treatment of thyroid problems after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and the program for rehabilitation of such patients,” Igor Yurkevich noted.

He added that Japanese companies would like to register their pharmaceuticals on the market of the Customs Union. “We have discussed matters related to the testing of drugs in Minsk,” Igor Yurkevich pointed out.
