On September 12, a presentation of the first deputy director of the Agency on the topic "Investment attractiveness of the pharmaceutical industry in the Republic of Uzbekistan" was held as part of the business forum. He talked about the benefits given to new investors in the pharmaceutical-free economic zones of our country and the favorable conditions created for the development of their activities. In particular, the "Tashkent Pharma Park" innovative scientific-production pharmaceutical cluster project aroused great interest among the participants.

During the B2B negotiations, Uzbek companies had the opportunity to get acquainted with the main features of the Latvian market, the experience of cooperation, delivery of local products from various industries to the Baltic and EU countries, and directions of cooperation. Also, negotiations were held with the representatives of "Lotos Pharma," "PharmaSwiss Latvia, SIA" and "Merck & Co" enterprises of the Republic of Latvia.

On September 13, the delegation visited the "Grindeks" JSC, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies of the Republic of Latvia, which currently imports about 20 medicines to Uzbekistan. During the visit, officials discussed the issues of the localization of drugs in our republic.

During the negotiations between "Olainfarm" JSC and "Aziya Immunopreparat" LLC, experts proposed a draft cooperation agreement to produce and export immunobiological bacteriophage drugs in our country.

On September 14, members of the delegation visited the State Agency of Medicines of the Republic of Latvia.

During the meeting, representatives discussed the issues of expanding the circulation of pharmaceutical products and increasing the terminology between the countries in Latvia's trade and economic sphere.
