In his speech, Vladislav Shestakov emphasized that in order to prevent marketing of substandard medicines, a balance of regulatory supervision requirements and regulatory flexibility is needed, which is reached through readiness for changes that contribute to developing the regulatory system, and consequently to creating conditions for the growth of the local pharmaceutical industry and ensuring public access to medicines, including innovative ones.

Vladislav Shestakov noted that increasing the adaptability of the regulatory system, its patient-centeredness, the creation of a regulatory framework, contributes to the most rapid implementation of new regulatory tools.
