At the meeting, it was emphasized that pharmaceuticals are one of the most promising and priority areas of cooperation between Uzbekistan and Hungary.

During the negotiations, prospects for strengthening cooperation with the Gedeon Richter company in the medical and pharmaceutical fields were discussed.

The head of the diplomatic mission of our country also visited the technological facilities of the production complex, where he got acquainted with the process of production and packaging of medical drugs, inspected the equipment and finished products.

In his interview, International Sales Director Andras Oros noted that the Gedeon Richter company has a long history of presence in the Uzbek market – since 1955.

We discussed the possibilities of establishing the production of certain drugs in Uzbekistan. We hope that we will be able to expand the company’s portfolio in Uzbekistan. We see great prospects in the Uzbek market,” Andras Oros said.
