For example, today we are on the threshold of personalized medicine, in which individual patient differences will be considered for the most effective use of drugs. Such expertise and the best world experience in the sphere of pharmaceutical engineering are being developed particularly in the ISPE association, which unites more than 20,000 members from more than 90 countries of the world», – commented Alexander Sharonov, Director of the independent Eurasian ISPE Affiliate.

ISPE is a non-profit organization that conducts many educational programs, issues manuals and scientific materials on the design, construction and operation of pharmaceutical production. Thus, we help our specialists to be at the same educational and professional level with foreign colleagues. That is why the Minpromtorg of Russia actively supports the initiative to open ISPE Affiliate on the Eurasian territory», – underscored Sergei Tsyb.

«Each pharmaceutical company follows its own strategy, but the industry has common goals – to meet the needs of a Russian patient and strengthen Russia’s position in the world pharmaceutical arena. We can reach this goal by combining efforts, including assistance of professional association», – commented Dmitriy Efimov, General Manager of JSC «Nizhpharm», senior Vice President of STADAAG. – That is why «Nizhpharm» was among the first to support the creation of the ISPE EAEU Affiliate. We see the great potential in interaction on key issues with the global industry community».

We are at the beginning of ISPE EAEU Affiliate establishment. Right now, the very moment has come when our market is fully ripe and ready for this step.
