The Iranian Health Ministry expressed its keen interest to import certain medicines from India.
This latest move by Iran is seen in the context of recent Indian delegation to Tehran. The delegation has been successful in gaining vital export business leads as the Indian embassy in Tehran had sent request letter to the Pharmaceutical Export Promotion Council of India (Pharmexcil) to intimate the pharma industry members to supply essential medicines to the healthcare sector of the country, Pharmabiz reported.
According to sources, it is understood the Iranian Health Ministry had expressed its interest to import some 28 different varieties of medicinal drugs ranging from tables, capsules, solutions and injectables of variable quantities from the Indian suppliers.
