The greeting reads, in part:
“You will be discussing critical issues related to prospects for the manufacture of medical products and, above all, the development of an innovative strategy for the industry. The effectiveness of Russian health care today depends to a large extent on the supply of medical equipment and medicines in general. And on these depend the life and health of millions of our citizens.
One of your obvious priorities is improving the quality of these products. This requires modernising our way of doing business and a quantum leap to meet modern standards and acquire new technology. Only in this way will we create a powerful up-to-date medical industry and enhance its competitiveness in domestic and foreign markets”.
