Five Bangladeshi pharmaceuticals get entrance to Azerbaijan
The Azerbaijan government has recently approved the registration of five pharmaceuticals products of a Bangladeshi company.
All the products belong to Beximco Pharmaceuticals, Bangladesh embassy in Ankara said in a statement on Saturday.
The approval came when Bangladeshi Ambassador to Turkey Zulfiqur Rahman, who is also accredited to Azerbaijan, submitted his credentials to Azeri President Ilham Aliyev on Thursday.
This is for the first time any pharmaceutical product from Bangladesh was licensed to get entry in the highly competitive market of Azerbaijan, the statement added.
The registration had been pending with the Azeri authorities for several years, and was expedited only after instructions from the Azeri president and its health minister.
The Azeri health minister agreed to send a team of quality control executives of the ministry to Bangladesh for inspecting the pharmaceuticals manufacturing plants of the latter for a better understanding of locally produced medicines.
