The event was attended by the Ambassador of Grenada to Russia Mr. Oleg Firer, Director for Health Economics of the R-Pharm Group of Companies Alexander Bykov and Director of the International Cooperation Department Anton Slinchenko.

During the meeting, the parties discussed the prospects for joint cooperation between Russia and Grenada in the field of providing the Caribbean market with medicines, unleashing the potential of this region for Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers. In particular, the Chief Medical Officer of Grenada in his speech noted that despite the small population of the island itself, Grenada trades duty-free with all the countries of the Eastern Caribbean, and this is a significant market. In addition, there is not a single pharmaceutical manufacturer in Grenada; all medicines are imported, always having an instruction in English.

“In order to start our cooperation, it is necessary to obtain a certificate on key diseases of the region, a list of medicines circulated in the territory of Grenada, as well as information on mechanisms for entering the local market,” said Alexander Bykov. According to him, thanks to the new Pharma 2030 strategy, Russian pharmaceutical companies have a good chance to start exporting medicines with state support and the Caribbean market is of particular interest.
