A Welcome Address of N. Volovich to the Participants and Guests of the VI All-Russia GMP Conference


Gedeon Richter can freely claim the title of one of the oldest players in the Russian and international pharmaceutical market: this year we are celebrating the 120th anniversary of its foundation. Throughout the history of its existence, our company has experienced different periods, but the challenge the entire world faced in early 2020 cannot be compared with anything. Neither the world, nor we, nor the market will ever be the same again, and we need to learn to live with these changes, and not only to keep the efficiency of our business, but also to bring new solutions to the pharmaceutical industry, the need for which is now especially great.

For several successive years, we have been actively participating in the GMP conference and we can observe productive dialogues at event sites – even last year’s experience in the online format did not reduce the interest of participants. For our part, from year to year we strive for an international exchange of experience and involve our foreign colleagues in participation.

In the new reality, it is vitally important to contribute to complete development of the healthcare trend by combining the efforts of all parties: the state, business, doctors, patients. The search for new solutions and increasing research in the field of treating serious diseases, increasing the availability of therapy and medical care, production localization, compromise solutions in the field of medicines regulation and circulation – qualitative improvements in healthcare depend on all of us and on each of us individually.

I greet all colleagues who will visit the event for a constructive discussion and dialogue, who are not indifferent to people’s well-being and health – I wish all of us productive meetings, new ideas and right decisions!
