Georgia has opened its pharmaceutical market to Turkey, which will reduce the prices of medicines. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister at the Government session.
“We signed the Government decree today, therefore the Turkish market has already been opened and high quality GMP standard medicines will be imported from Turkey.
There is a big difference between prices. The most demanded medicines that cost conditionally GEL 10 here, they cost GEL 1 – 2 in Turkey. I could not hear any argument as to why the Turkish market should not have been opened. So we decided to open the Turkish market. It came into force today.
I hope that importers will import high quality medicines from Turkey, which will significantly reduce the prices of medicines in Georgia”, - said Irakli Garibashvili.
