It’s a good opportunity for Balkan Pharmaceuticals to communicate to its consumers that we are a responsible company, which follows closely the national and international standards in drug manufactory” said Vasile CAZACU, Chief department of records at Balkan Pharmaceuticals.
Xavier DELEU, journalist: „I am working on a documentary film about the global market of medicines. In a globalized world, a world where people are concerned about their health, where governments are preoccupied about health policies, I think it is the right moment to research this matter. For now, I am at the beginning of my research, Moldova being one of the first destinations. The next will be the USA. My purpose is to see from where are coming and how are produced the medicines sold in different countries”.
