Marat Omarov made an introductory speech. He noted that the government agency faces the task of not only dealing with price regulation, but also developing competition in this product market, ensuring the availability of quality services, primarily through localization.
- Like any business, it is a complex business that requires concessional loans and investments. We have a financial development institution - the Baiterek holding with its subsidiaries and unique support instruments, which provides real support. Therefore, we wanted to act as a “bridge” and hold an introductory meeting so that representatives of the Baiterek holding and its subsidiaries would tell about the available support tools. For their part, domestic pharmaceutical companies will talk about their plans and opportunities, as well as about the difficulties they face. During a pandemic, such cooperation is especially important , - explained Marat Omarov .
In turn, Rustam Karagoishin told the participants about the activities of subsidiaries that support large, medium and small businesses.
- The main mission of the Baiterek holding is to diversify and develop domestic production, that is, our Holding is the main instrument of the Government to modernize the country's economy, - noted Rustam Karagoishin .
Representatives of the Holding's subsidiaries spoke in more detail about their support tools. Also, participants from the pharmaceutical industry were able to ask their questions and get answers to them.
Meanwhile, as the organizers of the event noted, the dialogue will continue offline, the participants will be able to consult on issues of interest with representatives of the Baiterek holding, as well as offer their projects and ideas for support.
