Uzbekistan Today (English) - - REGIONS -

At the Kamol Med Farm en­ter­prise in Na­man­gan, new fa­cil­i­ties for the pro­duc­tion of med­i­cal items have been put into op­er­a­tion.

To date, dozens of types of al­co­holic so­lu­tions are pro­duced here, such as med­i­cal al­co­hol, cam­phor, men­o­vazine, io­dine, boric and sal­i­cylic acid. As of Au­gust 1, med­i­cal drugs have al­ready been pro­duced for more than 5.6 bil­lion soums or in over 11.1 mil­lion pack­ages.

In the new fac­tory, built on the tech­nol­ogy of the Chi­nese com­pany Zhe­jiang Jiang­nan Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Ma­chin­ery Co., Ltd, op­por­tu­nity is cre­ated for the pro­duc­tion of 17.8 mil­lion packs of tablets a year, 1.6 mil­lion pack­ages of med­i­cal capsules, and 4 mil­lion sa­chets.

At present, ex­em­plary batches of drugs such as omepra­zole, ciprofloxacin, acy­clovir, cinepar, am­broxol, persen, Essen­tiale Forte N, kol­drem have been man­u­fac­tured and trans­ferred for phar­ma­co­log­i­cal reg­is­tra­tion. Start­ing from the fourth quar­ter of 2018, the pro­duc­tion of cam­phor oil is planned, olive, al­mond and black cherry oil is pro­jected to be ex­tracted start­ing from 2019.

“The res­o­lu­tion of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try “On Mea­sures for Car­di­nal Im­prove­ment of the Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Sec­tor Man­age­ment Sys­tem”, signed 7 Novem­ber 2017, brought the de­vel­op­ment of the in­dus­try to a new level,” says the en­ter­prise man­ager D.Kholmirza­yev. “It en­vis­ages con­tin­ual es­tab­lish­ment of medicine pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties in ac­cor­dance with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards, pro­vid­ing the pop­u­la­tion and health­care in­sti­tu­tions with af­ford­able and high-qual­ity medicines. In or­der to cre­ate op­ti­mal con­di­tions for in­creas­ing the vol­ume of pro­duc­tion of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal goods and in­creas­ing the in­dus­try’s com­pet­i­tive­ness, raw ma­te­ri­als and equip­ment sup­plied from abroad are ex­empt from cus­toms du­ties. This is im­por­tant for the de­vel­op­ment of our ac­tiv­i­ties.

“Us­ing th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties and ben­e­fits, start­ing from the fourth quar­ter of this year it is planned to es­tab­lish the pro­duc­tion of 4 types of tablets, 3 kinds of capsules and gran­ules for drink­ing, and 4 kinds of bi­o­log­i­cally ac­tive ad­di­tives. At the same time, based on the Pro­gram for the De­vel­op­ment of In­dus­trial Po­ten­tial of the Na­man­gan Re­gion in 2016-2019, sub­stances from local medic­i­nal plants, in­jec­tions, oint­ments and sup­pos­i­to­ries are pro­jected to be pro­duced.

“In ad­di­tion, the en­ter­prise is in­cluded in the Lo­cal­iza­tion Pro­gram. In or­der to en­sure its ex­e­cu­tion from abroad, equip­ment for the pro­duc­tion of med­i­cal cot­ton wool, bleach­ing, clean­ing, and gauze stain­ing has been sup­plied and used. More than $ 140 thou­sand was spent on this work.”

Ac­cord­ing to D.Kholmirza­yev, the vol­ume of pro­duc­tion in 2019 will in­crease 4-4.5 times as com­pared to 2018, and 32 ad­di­tional jobs will be cre­ated. Cur­rently, the com­pany em­ploys about 60 peo­ple.
