Accepts Centre’s proposal to manufacture medical devices, pharmaceutical formulations and bulk drugs
The Gujarat government has accepted the Centres proposal for setting up three industrial parks in the state for manufacturing medical devices, pharmaceutical formulations and bulk drugs.
The proposal was made by Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers Ananth Kumar at ‘Pharmac India-2016’, an exhibition of pharmaceutical industry.
While talking to reporters after the event, Gujarat Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani said his government would start the work for identifying and acquiring the land for these parks at the earliest.
“The state government is very positive about these parks and we will do our best to see that these parks come up at the earliest. These parks are having a huge potential to provide employment opportunity to local youths and make Gujarat a global pharma hub,” said Rupani.
The CM also assured that around 300 generic medicine stores — Jan Aushadhi Kendra — would come up in different parts of state soon to provide cheap medicine to poor citizens.
