He emphasized that the cooperation of Darnitsa and the Union of Ukrainian Entrepreneurs will make it possible to efficiently face up to challenges holding back the development of the pharmaceutical market and to accelerate positive changes.
For this purpose, according to him, the company’s professional experience will be used, which with the help of the Union and in close cooperation with legislators should ensure transparency and equal competition rules for all participants. And this, in turn, will help to improve the position of Ukrainian pharmaceutical manufacturers in world markets.
“The company aims to effectively work to identify and eliminate barriers holding back the development of the pharmaceutical market,” Shymkiv emphasized.
“We are glad that we unite more and more transparent and innovative Ukrainian companies in the SUP. It is with such experienced leaders as Darnitsa that we can work qualitatively and systematically to implement positive legislative changes in the industry together with other members of the SUP Healthcare Committee. So we are ready for fruitful cooperation,” Kateryna Hlazkova, Executive Director of the Union of Ukrainian Entrepreneurs, commented.
