Belarus to export more medications to Georgia, share transplantology practices

TBILISI, 22 March (BelTA) – Belarus will export more medications to Georgia and will share its experience in transplantology and surgery, BelTA learned from Belarusian Healthcare Minister Valery Malashko.

The official said: “First of all, we work here via our state-run companies — Belmedpreparaty, Borimed, Minskintercaps, and Ekzon. These are the four main companies, which export merchandise to Georgia. Contracts on delivering nearly $1 million worth of medications were signed today.”

Valery Malashko mentioned the growing volume of shipped medications. “We have deeply penetrated the market and have earned a good reputation. Today I am going to meet with Georgian distributors and find out how far we can go from now on. Some 160 Belarusian medications are registered in Georgia. Another 18 medications are going through the registration process. It is definitely not the limit,” said the official.

The Belarusian healthcare minister said it is important to get private pharmaceutical companies involved in this cooperation. “The potential is very high. In various forms. Not only the delivery of ready-made medications but also medications in bulk. In other words, they can package the medications we make. I hope that we will have a competitive edge not only in quality but prices, too,” he said.

Valery Malashko also mentioned plans to sign a roadmap on implementing the agreement on cooperation in healthcare and medical science between the Belarusian Healthcare Ministry and the Georgian Labor, Health, and Social Affairs Ministry within the framework of the Belarus president’s official visit to Georgia. “The document provides for advancing cooperation not only in pharmaceutics but also in the sphere of medical technologies, which we intend to introduce here with assistance of our colleagues,” said the healthcare minister.

Valery Malashko specified he was referring to organ transplantation, however, the Georgian side is also interested in cooperation in cardiac surgery, conventional surgery, and other areas. Expanding cooperation in training medical personnel is another promising avenue.
